A German intelligence firm working for the Qatari government has suspected forces and entities inside the Gulf Kingdom of channeling funding to the Lebanese militant organization Hezbollah, published German news outlet Die Zeit over the weekend.
The contractor, known as “Jason G” in the article, said that during his tenure in Doha “major remarks about Israel were also made at one of the meetings by a Qatari diplomat who said they considered the Jews as their rivals.”
When operating in Doha, according to Die Zeit, the whistleblower compiled a file on multi-million contributions by Qatari investors to the Iran-backed Shiite terror party.
“Money flows came from several wealthy Qataris. And also exiled Lebanese people from Doha to Hezbollah. Donations are said to have been processed through a charity organization in Doha with the knowledge of influential government officials,” the whistleblower told the German outlet.
The findings are also capable of rising diplomatic pressure on Qatar and contributing to sanctions, added the paper.
