Report: Qatar Expels Hamas Leader Khaled Mashaal


hamas-leader-khaled-meshalHamas chief terrorist Khaled Mashaal has become a persona non grata in his erstwhile home of Qatar, after the Gulf state decided to expel the terrorist group’s leader due to international pressure, reports Arutz Sheva.

International outcry has demanded that Qatar, a key sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood and its Gaza offshoot Hamas, distance itself from terror, and has included calls to stop Qatar from hosting the World Cup in 2022 unless it ceases its funding of terrorism.

That pressure led Qatar to expel seven senior Muslim Brotherhood members in an effort to close ever growing gaps with Egypt; by contrast Turkey, also a leading sponsor of Hamas, said it would welcome the seven leaders.

Reportedly Mashaal is currently considering moving to Tunisia or Turkey.
