Hamas leader kicked out of Syria

September 2nd, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

There are reports that Hamas Politibureau head Khaled Meshaal has left Syria.

The timing is very interesting – one day before French President Nicolas Sarkozy lands at Damascus Airport. And just as Syria and Israel signal they are ready for direct talks.

His presence in Damascus has been a key sticking point in the Israel-Syria talks. Israel says it considers the move a huge sign that Syria is serious about the talks.
