Palestinian Territories: Qatari Emir To Visit West Bank

Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani will visit Ramallah on Dec. 21 for the first time, unnamed Palestinian sources said, Maan reported. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with al-Thani in Doha on Dec. 17. The emir will first meet with Jordanian King Abdullah II in Amman and fly to the West Bank in a Jordanian military helicopter. The sources said al-Thani is seeking to balance the trip he made to Gaza in October, which was seen as breaking the diplomatic isolation of Hamas, the rivals of the Abbas' West Bank-based Palestinian Authority.
