CAIRO – 17 November 2017: Thousands of members of a tribe called Qahtan, which is based in eastern of Saudi Arabia on border line with Qatari, will meet on Friday night to discuss Qatari regime decision on revoking citizenship of a number of the tribe’s senior chieftains and leaders, several news sources reported on Friday.

A footage posted by Arab activists on Twitter shows hundreds of vehicles was heading to the eastern area to support prominent chieftains of Qahtan tribe.

Activists vowed to hold a protest on Friday on the boarders with Qatar against Tamim, as a response to the Qatari regime exercises against his people.

Chieftains of two main tribes called Qahtan and el-Hawager were preparing to receive 100 thousand of their tribes’ members coming from Saudi Arabia and Arab Gulf countries to support the protest against Tamim, according to several news sources.

Earlier, Sultan Ben Qarmala, a chieftain of the tribe Qahtan, has warned the Qatari regime from affecting the security of Saudi Arabia.

He said that Qatari regime involved the tribes in political conflicts after revoking citizenships of two chieftains, adding that this contradicts the international law of human rights.

He also condemned the regime which is hiring Iranian, Israelis and Turkish in internal posts such as media and military, instead of Qataris who have the right to work in these posts.

Ben Qarmala called Qatari people and intellectuals to support Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim Al-Thani and Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali Al-Thani, two members of the Qatari royal family, whose assets were frozen by the Qatari regime.
