"Qatar knows the status of the abductees. We [Israel] know, and so does the US," Yossi Cohen, the former head of the Mossad, disclosed in an interview with Channel 11 on Saturday night. Cohen explicitly acknowledged Qatar's knowledge of abductions of Israelis by Hamas, and hinted that he and other Israeli figures were in dialogue with them. Expanding on Qatar's role in the reaction towards the October 7th massacre by Hamas against close to 2,000 Israelis, Cohen emphasized the importance of effective intermediation.
