Den arabiske avisen al-Hyat skriver at Hamas vil forlate Syria for Qatar. Men det er bare den politiske ledelsen som er velkommen.

Qatar nekter å gi opphold til den militære ledelsen.

The political leadership of Hamas intends to leave Damascus and move to Qatar, according to a report in the London-based Al Hayat Saturday. The report could not be confirmed by any other sources.

According to the report, Qatar agreed to host Hamas’ exiled leader Khaled Mashaal and other senior officials but has not agreed to host the organization’s military wing.

Hamas rykket ut og dementerte meldingen.

Det sies også at Egypt skal ha gått med på å la Hamas åpne kontor i Kairo.
