Top Iranian diplomat meets with Hamas head Haniyeh in Qatar

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has met in Doha with Hamas politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh, according to Iran’s state-run media.

A short video shows the two embracing as Amirabdollahian exits a car. No details about the meeting are released.

Iran has denied helping plan or knowing ahead of time about Hamas’s onslaught into southern Israel a week ago, in which the terror group slaughtered some 1,300 Israelis, most of them civilians. It has cheered the massacre as a victory.

Amirabdollahian is in Doha after visiting Lebanon, Syria and Iraq in recent days. He met in Beirut last week with Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah.

According to an Axios report Saturday, Amirabdollahian has warned Israel through the UN that Iran will intervene if Israel does not call off its looming ground incursion into Gaza.
