US Intelligence Alleges UAE Hacked Qatari Government Sites Sparking Crisis

Irune Rengel | 18 Julio, 2017, 06:29

The development emerged hours after The Washington Post, citing unidentified USA intelligence officials, reported that the UAE orchestrated the hacking of Qatari government websites in May to post pro-Iran comments that ultimately led to the feud.

The hacks took place almost two weeks earlier on May 24, one day after senior Emirati officials allegedly discussed the plan.

The hack resulted in the circulation of a false news story on Qatar News Agency which included made-up quotes that were attributed to Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani.

The US officials, who have not been named, told the Washington Post that it was unclear whether the UAE carried out the hacks itself or used a third-party to carry them out.

"Next greater isolation, incremental measures & reputational damage stemming from Doha's continued support for extremism & terrorism", he tweeted.

The Washington Post reported on Sunday that the UAE helped arrange the hacking.

Though Qatari officials repudiated the quotes that started the whole scandal as part of a hack, the blockading states' demands have continued to center on clamping down on Qatari state media, whether outright closing them or simply rendering them heavily censored copies of their Middle East counterparts.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday returned to the United States from his shuttle diplomacy in the Gulf region to try to resolve the dispute.

"We need a regional solution and worldwide monitoring".

With US spy agencies now apparently briefing against them, Qatar's antagonists may conclude US sympathy for their position is rapidly dwindling.
