Qatar objects to Israel’s annexation plan

A team led by Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh met Thursday with Qatar’s Foreign Minister Muhammad bin Abdurrahman al-Thani in Doha to discuss the latest developments in Palestine.

The team, including senior Hamas officials Musa Abu Marzuq, Izzat al-Rashak and Maher Obeid, spoke with al-Thani about Israel’s annexation plan, Jewish settlements and the Judaization of Jerusalem.

The team praised Qatar for supporting the Palestinian people.

Al-Thani said his country will continue this approach and support all efforts to ensure national unity in Palestine.

The Fatah and Hamas movements decided to object to Israel’s annexation plan and the so-called “Deal of the Century.”

Hamas and Fatah have remained at odds since the former seized control of the Gaza Strip in mid-2007 after several days of street fighting.

Israel’s new government is expected to present its strategy this month for implementing the “Deal of the Century” proposed by US President Donald Trump.

The plan gives Israel a free hand to annex large parts of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley, which Israel occupied in 1967.

The West Bank, including East Jerusalem, is viewed as occupied territory under international law, making all Jewish settlements there as well as the planned annexation illegal.

Palestinian officials have threatened to abolish bilateral agreements with Israel if it goes ahead with annexation, which would further undermine a two-state solution.AA

  1. Bismillah.
    It’s a curse of Allah swt upon Arabs today [ GCC powers are helpless watchdogs for USA & it’s allies. ] Because Today’s Modern Age Arab Muslim Nations cannot Combat Israel & it’s Ally. Their own government are fighting amongst themselves for Ammasing Great Oil wealth & own self centred Interests & claim material / military might.
    When a people forget their role on earth , their true origin, dignity & Honor. They are left to be Dead meat for scavangers.
    Only a Supreme People’s Movement can save Palestinian cause Establishment & Honor in Jerusalem. The Soul of Islam has its Roots with Jerusalem as well & these can not be separated till day of judgement on planet Earth.
    Allah swt is the Greatest!
