Report: Qatar expels Hamas leader to Turkey

The Qatari government expelled Hamas political leader Khaled Meshal to Turkey, after hosting him in exile since he left Syria at the start of the civil war, CNN reported on Tuesday.

Aside from Meshal, members of the Muslim Brotherhood were also expelled, a move which followed a Saudi initiative to strengthen ties between Qatar and Egypt. The Palestinian news agency Ma’an cited Turkish media as saying that Meshal discussed the possibility of relocating to Ankara in his recent meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, after the Qatari government asked him to leave the country.

The Israel Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem praised Qatar, saying in a statement: “We congratulate the Qatari decision, and expect the Turkish government will do the same now.”

    I wonder if there will be a comment from Nato re one of its members Turkey harboring the member of a designated terrorist group.

    Well sure. Turkey hates Jews even more than Qatar.
