Saudi-bloc issues ‘terror list’ of 18 Qataris

Prime News, International,  Doha (Qatar], June 9:-  As many as 59 individuals and 12 organisations – either Qatar based or funded by Qatar – on a “terror list,” a joint statement by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt and the UAE has said.

“This list is connected to Qatar and serves suspect agendas, in an indication of two-faced Qatari policies, which announce that they are fighting terrorism on one hand, while funding, supporting and sheltering various terrorist groups on the other,” the statement read.

“These four states renew their commitment to their role in strengthening their efforts to combat all forms of terrorism and laying down the pillars of security and stability in the region,” it added.

The 18 Qataris named on the list includes businessmen, politicians and senior members of the ruling family including a former interior minister.

Earlier, following a similar move by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain, Yemen also broke off its ties with Qatar for working with its enemies of the Iran-aligned Houthi militia, local media reports said.
