GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on Thursday called Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in order the possibility of an upcoming visit to Qatar after the Qatari emir told him the country was committed to financially helping Palestine earlier in the day.

Haniyeh spoke with Qatari Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani earlier on Thursday, and the leader said that the small Persian Gulf state is committed to supporting the Palestinian unity government and to helping pay the salaries of its employees.

Hamas said in a statement on Thursday evening that after this call, Haniyeh phoned Hamdallah to talk about visiting Qatar in order to set up a process to support the unity government's budget.

Haniyeh also congratulate the premier on leading the unity government, emphasizing the importance of its role to all Palestinians.
