Qatar has spared no effort in supporting Palestine over the years, be it in the form of providing monetary aid, rebuilding houses, extending medical support, or advocating for the Palestinian cause at various international meetings.
The country has once again expressed its support to Palestine in the wake of the recently announced Middle East Peace Plan by US President Donald Trump that has been rejected by the Palestinian leadership and angered the Palestinian people.
