Palestinians say Gaza man killed at protest on Gaza border

Hamas, however, denied the tunnel's existence in a statement Friday, saying: "Our resistance policy completely respects UNRWA institutions and public institutions; meaning, we and other factions carry on with resistance activities far from residential areas and institutions". "If these talks don't lead to new understandings getting Hamas out of its hard political situation, I think there will be more crises", said Abusada.

Qatar doesn't support Hamas directly, but its large-scale projects have significantly eased the burden on Hamas authorities and given it some credit for bringing this money to Gaza.

Mkhaimar Abusada, an independent Gaza political analyst, said Qatari pressure could increase Hamas' political and financial isolation.

This, they said, was because of Qatar's alleged ties with Iran and Islamist groups in the region.

Hamas has reacted in disbelief after the Saudi's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir termed it as being part of the extremist and terrorist groups supported by Qatar. Meshaal was recently succeeded by Ismail Haniyeh, who remains in Gaza but is expected to move to Qatar's capital Doha.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP news agency that hundreds of Palestinian demonstrators had burned tyres and thrown stones the length of the security fence between Israel and Gaza. Haniyeh was expected to remain in the Gaza Strip rather than operating in exile.

In a sign that Hamas is rapidly reassessing what the regional shifts mean, its new leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, is now in Egypt for meetings. Where can they go?

The official also pointed to a recent visit to Egypt by the Hamas delegation and said the trip has been positive and will lead to a number of agreements, which would serve the interests of the two sides. "Hamas maybe the biggest loser of what is happening with Qatar".
