Hamas Grateful for Egypt's Allowing Passage of Qatari Construction Material


Published 2014-04-17 10:03:13| Amwal Al Ghad English

Gaza's Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haneya thanked the Egyptian authorities on Wednesday for facilitating the entry of a Qatari grant in the form of construction materials to rebuild the Gaza district, MENA reported. Haneya, in a press conference following an inspection of the Qatari grant's construction work, called on Egyptian authorities to permanently reopen the Rafah border crossing, the land passage between Gaza and Egypt which the latter has maintained severely restricted access to since last July. "The call for the opening of the crossing comes out of love for Egypt and the recognition of its historic role in supporting the Palestinian cause," Haneya added. Following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, the Egyptian army destroyed hundreds of tunnels running beneath the border through which construction materials and fuel were transferred. This caused the Gaza Strip's worst ever energy crisis, with power outages lasting up to 16 hours a day. In March, Hamas described the closure of the Rafah crossing as a "crime against humanity," and the UN criticised it for its effect on "the civilian population, including patients awaiting medical treatment". Egyptian authorities have maintained that they were protecting their own land from a spike in terrorist attacks that targeted police and army personnel in Sinai and extended to other governorates across Egypt. In March, an Egyptian court also banned all activities in Egypt by Hamas pending a court verdict in an espionage case involving ousted president Morsi and 36 members of his Muslim Brotherhood group, as well as members of the Islamist Palestinian group. The prosecution accuses the Brotherhood members of collaborating with Gaza rulers Hamas, Lebanese Shia group Hezbollah and other organisations "inside and outside" Egypt to smuggle arms, organise military training for group members in the Gaza Strip, and fund a scheme to stir chaos and threaten national security in Egypt. Hamas has denied any involvement in prison breaks or illegal cooperation with the ousted Islamist leader. The move also comes amid growing tension between Egypt and Qatar. Qatari-Egyptian relations have deteriorated since Morsi was overthrown, as the Qatari government supported him and his Muslim Brotherhood during the Islamist president's troubled one-year rule. Egypt's interim authorities have since accused Qatar and its satellite TV station Al-Jazeera of being biased in favour of the outlawed Brotherhood, which was deemed a terrorist organisation by the Egyptian government in December, a decision that was later upheld by a Cairo court in February. Despite the recent fallout, speaking at the Arab League summit in Kuwait last February, Qatari Prince Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad insisted that his country was keen on maintaining strong relations with Egypt, stressing "the brotherly links" between the two countries.
International News
When President Barack Obama meets Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a summit next week, they will be battling negative undercurrents that could undermine their message that Asia's most important security alliance is firm. Obama, stopping in Tokyo at the start of a four-nation Asian trip, must counter worries in Japan that his commitment to its defense in the face of an increasingly assertive China is weak. Abe will be trying to soothe U.S. concerns that his conservative push to recast Tokyo's war record with a less apologetic tone is overshadowing his pragmatic policies on the economy and security. The two leaders will also need to demonstrate at least the prospect of progress on the economic centerpiece of what the Obama administration calls its strategic "rebalance" to Asia - a Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact that would bring together Japan, the United States and 10 other regional economies. Strains could also emerge over the crisis in the Ukraine, expected to be on the agenda when the two leaders talk. Japanese and U.S. officials say the alliance is rock-solid and the atmospherics will be just fine at what will be the first state visit to Tokyo by a U.S. president since Bill Clinton in 1996.
MENA News
Opposition activists accused President Bashar al-Assad's forces of a new poison gas attack in the Syrian capital on Wednesday, posting footage of four men being treated by medics.  They said the chemical attack, the fourth the opposition has reported this month, was in the Harasta neighborhood. Reuters could not independently verify the footage or the allegation due to restrictions on reporting in Syria.  Activists posted a video on YouTube on Wednesday of four men being treated with oxygen. A voice off-screen gave the date and said Assad's forces used "poison gas in Harasta." It did not say if there were fatalities. The face of one of the men appeared to be covered in vomit. He was shown shaking and moaning as doctors treated him.  The voice off-screen said chemical weapons were also used in Harasta on Friday. A U.N. inquiry found in December that sarin gas had likely been used in Jobar in August and in several other locations, including in the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Ghouta, where hundreds of people were killed.
