Dubai police commander Dhahi Khalfan, who gained fame for alleging Israeli Mossad involvement in the assassination of Hamas official Mohammed al-Mabhouh at a Dubai hotel in 2010, has strongly criticized Hamas’s close ties with Turkey and Qatar, in addition to its abandonment of the Egypt-Saudi Arabia alliance.
“Hamas must cease firing rockets at Israel and accept the Egyptian cease-fire proposal, accept the Saudi leadership and abandon Qatar,” Khalfan wrote on Twitter.
Khalfan also criticized Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal for his lavish lifestyle in Qatar during a conflict in Gaza.
“He who lives in luxurious five-star hotels in Qatar cannot meet achievements for the Palestinians. The Palestinians must unite around Abu Mazen (Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas),” he tweeted.
