Ismail Haniyeh, leader of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, plans to meet Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan, while Ankara’s top diplomat also met Hamas leader during a visit to Doha on Wednesday, as reported by Reuters.

Turkey, a NATO member, opposes Israel’s actions in Gaza, urging an immediate ceasefire. Erdogan views Hamas positively and criticizes Western support for Israel, imposing trade restrictions accordingly.

Erdogan reaffirmed his stance, calling Netanyahu responsible for the regional crisis. Meanwhile, Turkish FM Hakan Fidan met Haniyeh in Doha, discussing Gaza aid, ceasefire efforts, and regional tensions, particularly Iran-Israel dynamics.

Fidan emphasized the need for Palestinian unity and a two-state solution. He urged Western actors to reassess their stance on Hamas, advocating for the group’s role in peace negotiations.

Hamas reiterated its commitment to disarm once a Palestinian state is established based on 1967 borders. Fidan conveyed Turkey’s support for a ceasefire and Hamas’s willingness to engage in political processes.

Hamas aims to transform into a political entity post-statehood, ending its armed activities. Fidan’s discussions with Haniyeh centered on dispelling Western concerns about Hamas’s designation as a terrorist organization.
