Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt & UAE ban immigration from Qatar and cut diplomatic ties.
Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry has issued a statement saying it is suspending diplomatic relations “in order to preserve its national security.” Bahrain blames Qatar’s “media incitement, support for armed terrorist activities, and funding linked to Iranian groups to carry out sabotage and spreading chaos in Bahrain.”
Egypt has accused Qatar of taking an “anti-Egyptian course” by supporting “terrorist” organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s state news agency reported.
Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have given Qatari nationals two weeks to leave their territory, Reuters reports.

“There was no justification for what the Qatari ruler, Sheikh Tamim Al-Thani, said in his speech on Wednesday morning because the name of Qatar was not mentioned by summit speakers or in its final communiqué. The Emir might have been the victim of his subconscious mind in an attempt to raise suspicion about the conference and its discussions.”
“Sheikh Tamim went on to say that he was aware of the reason behind this alleged campaign and emphasized that it would not succeed because of “judicial investigations into the president’s violations and abuses.” Hats off to the Emir for his political knowhow and wisdom!”
