Gulf Arabs slam Palestinian terror groups for ‘supporting’ Houthi attacks
Tensions between the Palestinians and the Gulf countries escalated after the signing of the Abraham Accords.

Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) condemned over the weekend the Saudi-led coalition airstrikes in Yemen, drawing sharp criticism from Arabs in the Gulf. Several writers and political analysts from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain responded by launching a scathing attack on the Palestinian groups in particular and the Palestinians in general for allegedly supporting the Iranian-backed Houthi militia in Yemen, which has launched drone and missile attacks on Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Tensions between the Palestinians and the Gulf countries escalated after the signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain in 2020. The Palestinian Authority, Hamas, PIJ and other Palestinian factions condemned the “normalization” agreements with Israel and accused the Gulf states of “betraying” the Palestinians. Many Gulf Arabs responded by accusing the Palestinians of being “ungrateful.”

I think the Palestinians are biting the hand that feeds them with the support of the Houthis.

Perhaps the Gulf states stopping funding to the Palestinians would help restore their appreciation to the Gulf states? :thinking

But I doubt that would make any difference. :doh
