United Arab Emirates Hacked Qatar, Sparking Gulf Crisis

  • Report UAE Behind Hacking of Qatari Media

"The Washington Post story today that we actually hacked the Qataris is also not true", he told the London-based think-tank Chatham House.

Swiss news network The Local said a fake news story quoting Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino had been posted on a copycat website on Saturday. Officials in Doha, however, say they believe a report implicating Abu Dhabi in the incident, which sparked a diplomatic crisis in the Gulf this May.

"What is true is Qatar's behaviour". Funding, supporting, and enabling extremists from the Taliban to Hamas and Gadhafi.

Yousef al-Otaiba, the UAE ambassador to the United States, called the Post article "false" in a statement.

The report has quoted anonymous U.S. intelligence officials who said that officials of Emirati government discussed the plan on May 23 and after that on the next day the story came up in Qatari News Agency's website where Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani was complimenting Iran and said that Qatar has healthy relations with Israel.

The statement cited the government's communications director, Sheikh Saif bin Ahmad al-Thani, as saying it was "especially unfortunate that this shameful act of cyber terrorism is being attributed to a fellow member of the Gulf Cooperation Council".

"This criminal act represents a clear violation and breach of global law and of the bilateral and collective agreements signed between the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council, as well as collective agreements with the Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and the United Nations", he said. "We will bring forth and drive home many facts and proof points that have not been known to the public opinion and global community before about the Qatar nurturing and sheltering of terrorist elements".

US officials have said that experts from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) helping Qatar investigate the incident are convinced QNA was hacked, but that identifying the culprit will take time.

The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt responded by blocking Qatari media.

"This is our message: You can not be part of a regional organization dedicated to strengthening mutual security and furthering mutual interests, and at the same time undermine that security and harm those interests".

When asked whether Qatar's membership was at stake, Gargash did not answer directly and repeated his remarks.

Still, the four Arab powers have said the memorandum fell short of allaying their concerns, that their sanctions would remain in place until Doha meets their demands and that they would keep a close eye on Qatar's efforts to fight terrorism funding.

Gargash described the list on Monday as an "opening gambit" but declined to directly answer whether the quartet would insist on closing Al Jazeera, implying the quartet may soften their demands.

President Donald Trump has sided strongly with Saudi Arabia and the UAE in the dispute, publicly backing their contention that Doha is a supporter of Islamic militant groups and a destabilizing force in the Middle East. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently concluded several days of shuttle diplomacy in the Gulf, but he departed the region without any public signs of a resolution.
