AMMAN, JORDAN — On Saturday, 17 October, I interviewed Hamas leader Khaled Mashal on a range of subjects at his offices in Damascus, Syria.
The full interview is currently being edited and will be released first at a new blog, The Palestine Note and will then appear here at TWN.
But during the meeting I asked Mashal to reconfirm news that I distributed on Friday — namely that despite the start-and-stop, blurred comments coming out about whether Hamas and Fatah would meet in Cairo for reconciliation negotiations — Hamas was going to send a delegation.
Full stop, Mashal confirms this in the seven second video above.
