Speculation has become rife that Haniyeh will replace Meshaal as Hamas’s top leader and permanently relocate to the Qatari capital.
The Hamas leader spoke shortly before a Gazan rocket exploded in an uninhabited area of the Sha'ar Hanegev regional council on Monday night.
Splinter group of Hamas' military wing claims killed member's links with Hamas leaders outside Gaza transformed him into a traitor in the eyes of his colleagues in the Kassam Brigades.
“The decision to prevent Mashaal from visiting Jordan is now politically motivated,” the sources said.
Mashaal praises the current “intifada” and calls on the Palestinian Authority to halt security coordination with Israel.
Speaking during visit to South Africa, Hamas leader says the “Jerusalem intifada” will continue until "Palestinians achieve freedom and the land returns to Palestine and its people.”
