Former prime minister Naftali Bennett slams the government after National Security Adviser Tzahi Hanegbi thanked Qatar for its “crucial” diplomatic efforts.

“The government of Israel is making a grave moral and practical mistake. Qatar is not a crucial partner for humanitarian and diplomatic activities. Qatar is the enemy itself,” Bennett posts on X.

“Qatar funds, artists and strengthens the Hamas-ISIS terror group,” he writes. “Israel’s stated goal is to destroy Hamas. Qatar’s goal is the exact opposite: saving Hamas.”

During his time as prime minister Bennett stopped the transfer of funds from Qatar to Hamas that had been initiated by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an effort to keep Hamas quiet.
