Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh thanked on Saturday His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad for pledging $480 million in support of the Palestinian people in the occupied West Bank and Gaza.
In a phone call, Haniyeh congratulated the Qatari Emir and people on the occasion of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
Haniyeh expressed his deep appreciation and gratitude to Qatar’s Emir, leadership, and people for allocating this grant that “highlights unity among the Palestinian territories.”
The Hamas chief hailed Qatar’s position which reflects a keen sense of Arab belonging, as it is a continuation of the constant Qatari supportive stances towards the Palestinian people at different levels.
Haniyeh noted that the Palestinian people highly appreciate Qatar’s support for them, which has never been cut off even at the most difficult circumstances.
Sheikh Hamad, in turn, congratulated the Head of Hamas Political Bureau and the Palestinian people on the occasion of Ramadan.
The Qatari emir reiterated his country’s constant position in support of the Palestinian cause and rights, stressing that Qatar was exerting strenuous efforts to alleviate the Palestinian suffering, lift Gaza siege, and achieve national reconciliation.
