CAIRO - 31 August 2017: Iran sent tons of rotten vegetables and fruits to Qatar, prompting the Qatari authorities to get rid of them immediately, according to “Qatar Mubasher” on Twitter.
The Qatari opposition page said on Twitter that “10 tons of Iranian vegetables and fruits were destroyed in Doha” after the detection of random samples and noticing a significant rise of chemical substances.
Qatar has resorted to Iran and Turkey to provide its need of food, after the four Arab countries (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain) cut all diplomatic ties with Doha due to its support of terrorism and extremism in the Middle East.
On June 23, 2017, the four Arab states requested 13 demands from Qatar, which were presented by Kuwait, the mediator in the crisis. The demands included that Qatar shut down Al-Jazeera TV network, cut diplomatic ties with Iran, stop financing and supporting terror groups, including the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, and end Turkey's military presence in Doha.
