Hamas leaders in Gaza launch ‘putsch’ against Mashaal for ceasefire

According to Channel 2’s Ehud Yaari, the Hamas leadership in the Gaza Strip overruled politburo chief Khaled Mashaal and pushed for a ceasefire with Israel against the will of the Qatar-based leader.

The Arab world analyst calls the decision by the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades and the Gaza-based leadership a “semi-putsch” against the Islamist movement’s leaders in the Gulf.
