Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed their ties with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

Air, land and sea links have been halted to the country from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain.

Qatar, home to the Al-Jazeera news network, also plays a role in negotiating with groups that many governments keep distance from.

The diplomatic bust-up threatens the global prestige of Qatar, which has a large USA military base and is set to host the 2022 soccer World Cup. However, the 2014 crisis did not see a land and sea blockade as threatened now.

It was not clear if the decision would affect American military operations.

MP Waleed Al-Tabtabai said he was saddened with the developments among GCC states, adding that the Arab nation has two enemies: Israel and Iran.

They have given all Qatari visitors and residents two weeks to leave their territory.

Saudi Arabia's civil aviation authorities have banned Qatari planes from landing or stopping at its airports, as well as crossing Saudi airspace.

This included "instigating against the State, infringing on its sovereignty, adopting various terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at destabilizing the region including the Muslim Brotherhood Group, ISIS and Al-Qaeda".

The tiny island nation of Bahrain blamed Qatar's "media incitement, support for armed terrorist activities and funding linked to Iranian groups to carry out sabotage and spreading chaos in Bahrain" for its decision.

"However, the Qatar crisis can have an indirect impact on Turkey both negatively and positively", the expert said. Coercion is never the solution.

Tillerson said that if there's any role the USA can play "in terms of helping them address those" issues, "we think it is important" that the Gulf Cooperation Council "remain unified".

A split between Doha and its closest allies could have repercussions around the Middle East, where Gulf states have used their financial and political power to influence events in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

While restrictions have been imposed on state-owned Qatar Airways, there are no curbs imposed by the countries on carriers from India and other nations.

The airline said passengers holding a confirmed Qatar Airways ticket to any of the four countries between June 5 and July 6 are permitted to rebook their flights up to 30 days after their current departure date. According to the Qatar Stock Exchange website, the stock market indicator fell sharply from 9,923 to 9,400, followed by a continued decline to around 9,100 points.

Some Egyptian banks said they were halting dealing with Qatari banks.

Outside of Opec, South Sudan will drill 30 new wells this year and significantly boost oil output as it chases a peak 350,000 bpd target by mid-2018, the petroleum minister said on Monday.

"It seems that the Saudis and Emiratis feel emboldened by the alignment of their regional interests-toward Iran and Islamism-with the Trump administration", Gulf analyst Kristian Ulrichsen told Reuters news agency.

It dramatically escalates a dispute over Qatar's support for the Muslim Brotherhood.

It took a major gamble on the Muslim Brotherhood, supporting its brief stint in power in Egypt as well as the group's Islamist offshoots in the region, including Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip.
