I doubt if relations with Israel is a major factor in Mishal’s withdrawal from politics. With the declining influence of the Damascus regime he was unlikely to hold his ground even with the support of Qatar and Egypt (which at best is lukewarm), and if the Gaza wing is hardening up against Israel, why would Iran distance itself? My guess is that the key Arab countries for which Qatar is the mouthpiece are now trying to rebuild bridges with the Gaza wing. It will take at least a month before we start to get a sense of what is happening.
