The UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Middle East ally Egypt have extended their terror lists, adding two entities and 11 individuals from Qatar over ties to terrorism, according to the UAE’s state news agency, WAM.
The two entities have been included in the lists due to “spreading hate speech under the cloak of Islam to facilitate different terrorist activities”, according to a statement, while the individuals “have perpetrated different acts of terror directly funded by Qatar at various levels, including using Qatari passports and working under the cover of Qatari charitable organisations to facilitate their activities”.
