Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt issue Qatar-linked terrorism list
RIYADH // Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain on Friday issued a list of 59 individuals and 12 entities they say are linked to Qatar over terrorism.
It is the first joint statement issued by the four since severing ties with Doha on Monday.
The new designations came hours after Qatar said it would not “surrender” and rejected any interference in its foreign policy.
“This list is connected to Qatar and serves suspicious agendas in an indication of the duality of Qatar policies,” said the statement from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain.
It shows that Qatar “announces fighting terrorism on one hand and finances and supports and hosts different terrorist organisations on the other hand,” the statement said.
The list includes the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Yousef Al Qaradawi, and the 12 entities include the Qatari-funded charities Qatar Charity and Eid Charity.
“The four countries agreed on categorising 59 persons and 12 entities in their list of terrorism,” the statement said, affirming “that they will not be lenient in pursuing” such persons and groups.
In severing diplomatic ties with its Gulf neighbour on Monday, Riyadh accused Doha of supporting groups including some backed by Iran.
It accused Doha of harbouring “terrorist and sectarian groups that aim to destabilise the region, including the Muslim Brotherhood, Daesh and Al Qaeda”.
Among the 18 Qataris named are alleged terrorism financiers as well as prominent businessmen and politicians.
Abdel Hakim Belhadj, a former Libyan Islamist commander, is one of five Libyans listed, while Qaradawi and firebrand Salafi preacher Wagdi Ghoneim are among the 26 Egyptian nationals.
The list also names three Kuwaiti nationals, two Jordanians, two Bahrainis, an Emirati, a Saudi and a Yemeni.
