Source: Security Cover for Qatari Emir's Visit to Gaza Provided by Israel
"Israel had provided the necessary assurances for full security during Qatari Emir's visit to Gaza," an informed source told FNA on the condition of anonymity. Qatari Emir Shaikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani paid a visit to Gaza on Tuesday, becoming the first head of state to visit the Palestinian territory since Hamas was brought to power through a democratic election in the coastal strip five years ago. The source further argued that if Tel Aviv had been against the visit, it would have launched an intensive propaganda campaign against it, while Israeli officials did not make even a single work in opposition to the visit. "The Zionist regime's lack of protest against the visit is itself an evidence of the pre-planned security coordination made between the Qatari and Zionist regime's officials," the source underscored.
