Qatar Emerges Victorious in Response to Blockade Imposed by Countries


JUNE 5 last year was a turning point in the relations between the GCC (Gulf Co-operation Council) countries after three of these countries and a fourth regional country cut off political and economic relations, and imposed a blockade on the state of Qatar and the closure of land, sea and air borders on one of the founding members of the GCC countries.

Those countries imposed an unjust siege on the state of Qatar with the aim of influencing its independent sovereign decision and pretexts fabricated by those countries, such as supporting terrorism and interfering in the internal affairs of those countries, which are totally baseless accusations.

The intentions of these countries were revealed after they hacked the website of the Qatar News Agency and published a fabricated speech for His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Amir of the state of Qatar, which was later confirmed to have been a penetration of the agency.

Those neighbouring countries that have cut ties with Qatar have reportedly issued a list of demands to end this major Gulf crisis, insisting that Qatar shut down the Al Jazeera network, close a Turkish military base, and scale down ties with Iran.

It shows that the main objective of this blockade is to blatantly interfere in the internal affairs of the State of Qatar and to influence the independence of its sovereign decision. The State of Qatar worked very hard to solve the conflict with those countries, asking them to sit at the negotiating table through the Kuwaiti mediator.

Those actions forced Qatari citizens to leave the three Gulf states within 14 days. They prevented any Qatari citizen from entering, and many families were dispersed, some of whom could not complete medical treatment at hospitals. These decisions completely violate all human rights and principles.

Freedom of movement, education, employment, expression, residence and property, as well as denial of religious practice, incitement to violence and hatred, and violation of the right to health.

According to the latest census of the National Committee for Human Rights in the State of Qatar, more than 13 314 people were directly affected by these measures. …
