Al-Hayat Daily reported that the Hamas movement has decided to leave Syria, and Qatar agreed to host it after both Egypt and Jordan rejected to do so.
 
The paper quoted Palestinian sources in Gaza claiming that “Jordan and Egypt rejected Hamas’s request to move to their territory.

After the movement proposed this request to Qatar, the latter agreed to host its political leadership in Doha; however, it rejected hosting its military leadership”.
 
Khalid Mashaal, head of the group’s politburo, will move to Qatar while his deputy, Musa Abu Marzouk, will go to Egypt, according to the report.
 
This development comes two days after Egypt sponsored the Palestinian reconciliation deal. Egypt will invite leaders of all Palestinian factions to attend the signing ceremony of the formal reconciliation agreement next Wednesday.

In this regard, preparations for the celebration will be held at the headquarters of the Arab League in Cairo. The ceremony will last for three days.
 
The delegation, which would be headed by Mashaal, head of Hamas’s political bureau, is scheduled to visit Cairo tomorrow and meet with Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby and members of the ruling military council.
 
They will hold talks with senior Egyptian officials as a prelude to the signing of the reconciliation agreement on Wednesday in a ceremony attended by President Mahmoud Abbas, Khaled Meshaal, head of Islamic Jihad, Ramadan Shallah, and senior Egyptian officials.
 
Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby said that the agreement was aimed at paving the way for the Palestinians to seek UN recognition of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 lines in September.
