Is Qatar responsible for the collapse of the talks in Cairo? A Fatah leader told the Al Hayat newspaper that Qatar threatened re­cently to expel the head of the Hamas polit­ical bureau Khaled Mashaal if the terror or­ganization agrees to the ceasefire outline mediated by Egypt.

Israeli officials accused Mashaal in re­cent days of sabotaging the formulation of a permanent ceasefire agreement and plac­ing demands on Israel each time that could not be met.

The senior level Fatah official told Al Hayat that Hamas asked Egypt for Qatar to have a position in formulating a permanent ceasefire and also demanded that the Qa­tari Foreign Minister or the head of the Qa­tari Intelligence be permitted to participate in the talks.

A senior level Palestinian official told the newspaper that Egypt consistently refused the request, because Qatar did not officially apologize for their position towards Gener­al Sisi taking over Egypt in 2013.
