Saudi-led bloc unveils new Qatar 'terrorist' list

Saudi-led bloc unveils new Qatar 'terrorist' list

On June 9, the four Arab nations put 59 people and 12 organizations on the terrorist list due to their alleged funding of terrorism and support received from Qatar.

The new entrants include entities from Libya and Yemen and individuals from Qatar, Yemen and Kuwait who the Arab states say have direct and indirect links to Qatari authorities, a joint statement by the Saudi-led group said, according to SPA. Just when you thought the Gulf crisis couldn't get any more absurd, a media outlet linked to the Abu Dhabi ruling family has announced the release of a documentary claiming that Qatar was behind the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The Qatari minister ruled out the relocation of the Al-Udeid US military base from his country. Doha has denied the accusations.

The statement also said three Qatari nationals, three Yemenis, two Libyans and a Kuwaiti citizen were involved in "fundraising campaigns to support Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist militias in Syria".

"We will see that there have been advancements in some critical issues", he said.

The four Arab states have demanded that Qatar stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood movement, end ties with their Shiite rival Iran, and close broadcaster Al-Jazeera which they accuse of inciting unrest in their countries. The anti-Qatar quartet included expelling the Turkish troops as one of its list of demands to resolve the dispute.

"If the blockading countries remain reluctant to lift the siege, Qatar will be compelled to resort to the available global legal procedures to lift it", al-Attiyah said in an interview with Russia Today, excerpts of which was published by Qatar's official news agency on Tuesday.

Qatari Defense Minister Khalid bin Mohammed al-Attiyah has conditioned the lifting of the blockade imposed on his country by four Arab states before engaging in any dialogue with its neighbors.

The move by the four Arab governments came despite mounting global pressure to compromise in their blockade on Qatar which is in its second month.
