Hamas delegation visits Saudi Arabia after Iran deal

(JNS.org) A delegation of leaders from the Hamas terrorist group, including exiled political chief Khaled Mashaal, arrived in Saudi Arabia on Thursday, July 16, for a series of meetings with high-level officials in that country just days after the announcement of the Iran nuclear deal. In his meetings with the Saudis, Mashaal is expected to discuss improving bilateral ties, the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, and relations between Hamas and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party, the Jerusalem Post reported. The trip is the first visit to Saudi Arabia by Mashaal, who currently resides in Qatar, in more than three years. The other Hamas officials on the trip include Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook and Saleh al-Arouri, who resides in Turkey and is considered by Israel to be responsible for building Hamas’s presence in the West Bank.
