Mousa Abu Marzouk of the Hamas Political Bureau said in an April 28, 2024 interview with Al-Alam TV [Iran] April 28, 2024 that most of Hamas's leadership are Jordanian citizens. He said that Jordan would be their "natural place" of residence, however, the U.S. interfered and "forced Qatar to host Hamas leaders." Abu Marzouk qualified that there is no talk of the Hamas leadership leaving Qatar at the moment.

Mousa Abu Marzouk: "Most of Hamas's leaders are Jordanians. They have Jordanian passports. All this talk [about Hamas leaving Qatar] is nonsense. If Hamas's leaders would move [out of Qatar] – although nobody is talking about this – they would move to Jordan. That this where their people are. These are the passports they have. Most [Hamas leaders] are Jordanian citizens. So hundreds of people with Jordanian passports would move to Jordan.

"The Jordanians are hospitable and honorable people, and they support the Palestinian resistance. Our ties with the Jordanian regime are good. We have no problem of finding where to live. The problem is the U.S. that interfered and forced Qatar to host Hamas leaders. If the U.S. stopped interfering, the entire Hamas leadership would be in its natural place, Jordan, the following day."
