1. Qatar has been home to Hamas chief-in-exile Khaled Mashaal since 2012 and considers itself a key financial patron for Gaza.
2. That support is prompting accusations that Qatar helped scuttle a lasting truce in the month long Gaza war.
3. A Palestinian official, on condition of anonymity, said the experience indicated the Qataris “have no interest” in seeing Egyptian-led talks succeed.
4. The London-based pan-Arabic newspaper Al-Hayat separately quoted a senior Fatah official saying Qatar threatened to expel Mashaal if Hamas accepted an Egyptian peace proposal.
5. The paper also quoted him saying that Hamas demanded that Egypt grant Qatar a role in resolving the Gaza crisis, but Cairo rejected the idea.
6. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain recalled their ambassadors from Qatar in March.
7. The three Arabian counties said Qatar failed to uphold its end of a security agreement to stop meddling in other nations’ politics and backing groups threatening regional stability.
