CAIRO – 4 October 2017: Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, and ruler of the Dubai issued cabinet decision no. 28 of 2017, unveiled a new list of Qatari-linked individuals and organizations believed to have ties to terrorism.

The list includes nine people, including the Yemeni Abdullah Muhammad Ali Al Yazidi, Ahmad Ali Ahmed Baroud and Mohammed Bakr Al Dabba, along with Qatari Saleh bin Ahmed Al-Ghanim Al-Quwari, the Kuwaiti national Al-Saadi Abdullah Ibrahim Abu Khazim, and Ahmed Abdul Jalil Al Hasnawi from Libya.

The charity organizations placed on the new UAE-led terrorism list include the Yemen-based Balagh, el-Ehsan and al-Rahma.

Also on the list is the Libyan Shura Council of Benghazi, Al-Saraya media center, Boshra news agency, Rafallah al-Sahati brigade, and al-Naba’ TV channel.

At the start of the Arab-led boycott of Qatar, the Arab quartet consisting of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced in a joint statement that they included 59 individuals and 12 organizations with ties to Qatar on their terrorism watch list.

A list of 13-demands was later handed to Doha’s government by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain for reconciliation which includes the closing of Al-Jazeera broadcasting and the suspension of its relationship with the extremist government of Iran.
