Gaza, ALRAY - Hamas Movement and Palestinian Government appreciated the Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani's speech at the Arab summit in Kuwait; his take on the Palestinian cause, Jerusalem and settler breakings of Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Ezzat el-Rishq, a Hamas politburo member, welcomed Qatar's call to hold a mini-Arab summit to discuss Palestinian national reconciliation and establishment of an Arab fund for the resilience of Jerusalem, and its initiative to contribute 250 million dollars to this fund.
Ihab al-Ghusain, Spokesman of the Palestinian government, said that Qatar affirms again its genuine stance supporting the Palestinian cause and its insistence to discuss it at Arab summits.
"We welcome the Qatar Emir's speech as a whole; especially his demand for the siege imposed on Gaza Strip to be lifted and for the Palestinian reconciliation to be backed,” Mr al-Ghusain said.
Ghusain hoped the summit provisions to be reflected on the ground and not remain on paper.
Qatar has offered tangible support to the Palestinians meeting all of its promises towards the Palestinian cause and the Gaza siege, which can be observed during the last two wars, and power and storm crises, Ghusain told ALRAY.
The summit leaders called to withdraw the Arab peace initiative with the occupation in this critical time of the Palestinian cause in response to the Israeli occupation's violations in occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip.
