UAE Wants International Monitoring of Qatar

UAE is 'behind' hacking of Qatari government news sites which sparked crisis in the Middle East, US intelligence claims

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt imposed sanctions on Qatar on June 5, cutting diplomatic and transport ties with the tiny Persian Gulf monarchy, accusing it of financing extremist groups and allying with Persian Gulf Arab states arch-foe Iran.

Later that day, the official Qatar News Agency quoted Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani as criticising USA "hostility" towards Iran, describing it as an "Islamic power that can not be ignored", and calling Hamas the "legitimate representative of the Palestinian people".

US intelligence agencies confirmed in May that the UAE government discussed a plan to breach Qatar government websites, according to the Post.

The controversy started on May 23, when alleged hackers reportedly posted fake remarks on Qatar's official media platform criticising USA foreign policy and attributing the statement to the country's emir.

Speaking at the Chatham House forum in London on Monday, the UAE foreign minister, Anwar Gargash, twice denied the veracity of the claims.

The United Arab Emirates was not responsible for an alleged hack of Qatari websites that helped spark a month-long diplomatic rift with Doha, the UAE's minister of state for foreign affairs has said.

Burr Ridge pilot killed in Kansas plane crash
The Atchison County Sheriff's Office responded to a crash reported at 10:18 a.m. near 234th and Ness Road in Atchison County. Sunday Jul. 16, 2017, in Atchison County, Kansas after departing the Amelia Earhart Airport at approximately 10:00 AM.

US officials have said that experts from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) helping Qatar investigate the incident are convinced QNA was hacked, but that identifying the culprit will take time. UAE Ambassador Yousef al-Otaiba denied the report in a statement, saying it was "false", the Post said.

"What we really do want is we either reach an agreement and Qatar's behaviour changes, or Qatar makes its own bed and they can move on and we can move with a new relationship".

Fellow Gulf states had already rejected Qatar's explanation and said Sheikh Tamim's reported remarks reflected deliberate ambiguities in Qatar's policies that have undermined stability in the region.

"We've sent a message to Qatar".

"But with this new information - that certainly throws a wrench in these negotiations - it remains to be seen exactly where things will go". They planted a fabricated story and used it to create the current crisis situation.

Jahshan said the revelations should have an effect on the mediation efforts, although the signs during the crisis so far have not been encouraging.
