UAE refutes USA paper report on hacking of Qatari websites as 'false'

Irune Rengel | 19 Julio, 2017, 07:53

Though Qatar immediately took down the quotes and insisted they were the result of a hack, the comments nevertheless incensed the country's neighbors and ended up serving as a pretext for their decision to sever diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar weeks later.

USA intelligence officials confirmed that senior members of the UAE government discussed the hack on May 23, just one day before the news site and its social media accounts were hacked.

"We need to be certain that Qatar, a state with $300bn in reserves, is no longer an official or unofficial sponsor of jihadist and terrorist causes", the minister said in a statement delivered Monday in London. "Hope to see you again under better circumstances", Sheikh Mohammad bin Hamad al-Thani, the brother of Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, told Tillerson as he boarded his plane in Doha, Reuters reported.

The news agency has said that it believes Saudi hackers were behind the earlier breaches as a Saudi flag appeared as a banner image on its Twitter account last week while it was compromised.

Erdogan to visit Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar on July 23-24
Riyadh and its supporters have severed air, sea and ground links with Qatar, cutting off vital routes for imports including food. He also told Reuters the stability of the Qatari riyal, pegged to the U.S. dollar, will "continue for the future".

With efforts to mediate a way out of the crisis in full swing, Federation Internationale de Football Association has little incentive to act on a letter by six of its members - Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen and Mauritania - demanding that Qatar be deprived of its hosting rights because it is a "base of terrorism". The president will finally visit Qatar on July 24. If the reports are true, it proves how easy it is to set up bait for Trump - and to create an worldwide crisis now that he is president.

Several other Muslim nations also downgraded their diplomatic ties with Qatar.

The fresh fiasco complicates US efforts to smooth over the crisis.

Qatar rejected the demands and the countries now consider the list "null and void". Moving U.S. troops out of one of the biggest troublemakers in the region would send a clear signal to Middle East partners that Washington is finally getting tough on terrorism again, and is willing to turn its back on deviants.

Florida man arrested after reporting cocaine stolen, deputies say
Really, David? Cops said that Blackmon complained about $50 being stolen from him and "about on-quarter of an ounce of cocaine". The self-described drug dealer, an officer noted, "asked if I knew the cocaine was there, why did I let him keep talking".

In general, it's unclear what the Trump administration's policy is on the crisis.

Qatar has said the reported involvement of the UAE in hacking its state news agency in May was a violation of global law.

The newspaper report, published online Sunday evening, cited unnamed US intelligence officials.

The Turkish President said at the time that the solution lay through dialogue and after July 15 he may make a special trip. The Qataris have been one of Hamas' primary outside supporters for years, its most significant source of outside funds and the base for its political leader, Khaled Meshaal, directly supporting a murderous Islamist group committed to destroying Israel. In an interview with The Times, UAE minister for the federal national council Noura al-Kaabi said the Emirates sought "fundamental change and restructuring" rather than closure of Al Jazeera. In them, Otaiba criticizes Qatar and expresses a desire to see the US military base moved out of the country.
