French journalist Georges Malborneau of “Le Figaro” reported that Israel pledged to Qatar not to act against the Hamas leaders living in Doha. According to the report, Israel assured Qatar that Mossad would not carry out assassinations in the country. However, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reportedly ordered Mossad to assassinate senior Hamas officials. Netanyahu made this announcement during a press conference last Wednesday, stating that there is no commitment in the ceasefire agreement to refrain from acting against the leaders of Hamas. Defense Minister Yoav Gallant also mentioned senior Hamas officials, claiming that they are “living on borrowed time” and are “all dead men.”
