Sheikh Khalifa Bin Hamad Al Thani, the new Qatari Minister of Interiorin-depth

As part of a cabinet reshuffle, Qatari Emir Tamim issued an Amiri decree on 07/03/2023 appointing his full brother Sheikh Khalifa Bin Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani as Minister of Interior replacing Sheikh Khaled Bin Khalifa Bin Abdulaziz Al Thani.

According to our sources, Emir Tamim's decision to appoint his brother Sheikh Khalifa as Interior Minister was not surprising and was expected.

More recently, Sheikh Khalifa was also appointed as Commander of Internal Security Force (ISF) - Lekhwiya by an Amiri decree issued on 28/03/2023.
