Qatar has reportedly given Hamas a list of their member that must leave the Doha, the capital city of Qatar, according to Arab sources.

Qatar is a major supporter of Hamas. The country has supplied Hamas and Gaza with hundreds of millions of dollars, and has allowed Hamas members to organize and work in Doha.

Many of the names on the Qatari list are specifically responsible for organizing terror attacks in Judea and Samaria, and appear to have been supplied by Israel, and were reportedly obtained from Hamas prisoners in Israeli jails.

Qatar said the decision was made due to external pressures and expressed regret that it was being forced to take this action. It is believed that the pressure came from the United States and Saudi Arabia, according to Channel 10.

The Hamas terrorist leader Khaled Mashaal, head of the Hamas political bureau, lives in Qatar.

It is unknown if he was ordered to leave too.

Khaled Mashaal has an estimated net worth of $2.6 billion dollars, being held in Qatari and Egyptian banks–so he probably won’t be asked to leave that quickly.
