New Delhi (ABC Live): Eight former officers of the Indian Navy who were working in Doha-based Dahra Global sentenced to death by a court in Qatar Thursday on charges that have not been made public.

 The Report says, the Gaza Strip came under Hamas 17 years ago and the unemployment rate in Gaza is 47% and more than 80% of its population lives in poverty.

Contrary to above stated facts, Hamas equipped its armed force of thousands with rockets and drones and built a vast web of tunnels under Gaza. According to experts, the annual military budget of Hamas is more than $350 million.

Much of the money includes large sums of financial aid from Qatar via the United Nations, an arrangement encouraged and approved by Israel. The Qatari aid covers the salaries of civil servants, buys fuel for the power grid and provides cash to needy families.

The TOI reported that the first hearing in their trial was held on March 29. As speculation swirled about the accusations against the Navy veterans, family sources said they had not been informed of the formal charges under which the trial is being held, either by Qatari authorities or by Indian officials who have had consular access with the prisoners. In response to a question on the efforts the government was making for their release, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had told Parliament that their imprisonment was a “sensitive matter”. 

India position on Israel-Hamas war may play force for Qatar to act against Indian efforts for safe release of its the Navy veterans.
