Abbas meets in Ramallah with Qatari envoy to Gaza

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas received Qatari envoy Mohammed al-Emadi, the official PA news site Wafa reports, without providing any details regarding what they discussed.

Emadi, the head of Qatar’s Gaza Reconstruction Committee, has recently overseen the flow of hundreds of millions of dollars to projects in Gaza.

The Ramallah-based Palestinian leadership has at times accused Qatar of strengthening Hamas’s “illegitimate” governance over Gaza by providing funding for projects in the coastal enclave.
