Is Hamas' Leadership Fleeing Syria?

As if the situation in Syria wasn't difficult enough for the Assad regime, there is evidence that one of its staunchest allies is picking up and abandoning them.

The terrorist group Hamas has been consistently aided by the Ba'athist dictatorship and has been responsible for the deaths of Israelis, Palestinians, and Americans. Now the group (which is the government in Gaza) is leaving Syria, according to Ha'aretz, an Israeli paper.

More than 15 members of Hamas's Political Bureau have been operating in exile in Damascus since 1999.
According to the report, Hamas' military echelon will relocate to the Gaza strip. There was no mention of a reason for the relocation, which will come just days after Hamas and the leading West Bank party Fatah signed an historic reconciliation deal.

Their destination? US ally Qatar, home to an American base!
