Leadership of the Hamas terror group has been seeking, to no avail, a place to operate from as it seriously considers leaving Qatar, Kan news reported Tuesday.

Senior Hamas officials told the Qatari newspaper “Rai Alyum” that the terrorist group is very seriously considering leaving, as pressure from Qatar mounts on Hamas to reach a ceasefire deal with Israel.

The unnamed officials said that several Arab and Islamic countries rejected their proposal, out of what they said was fear of American backlash.

However, a “limited number” of countries have agreed to accept the leadership of the organization under “strict conditions.”

CNN network reported earlier this month that Qatar gave Hamas an ultimatum, that if they do not reach a deal soon, they will be driven out of Doha, a tactic which reportedly was fueled by American efforts. Kan additionally reports that the Biden administration pressured countries in the region to freeze the bank accounts of Hamas’ wealthy leaders.
