Al Jazeera: Qatari emir says Israel should lift Gaza siege

ABU DHABI - Qatar's emir, who visited Gaza earlier this month, said in comments broadcast on Sunday that Israel should lift its siege of the Gaza Strip.
In an interview with the Qatar-based news channel Al Jazeera, Emir Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani also said Israel would not halt its offensive in Gaza unless it met strong resistance.
"The nature of Israel means that it will not stop its aggression unless there is firm resistance like what happened in Gaza and with Lebanon's Hezbollah in the south," he said.
