Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt and Bahrain also want Qatar links with terrorist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and Fateh Jabhat al-Sham, the former affiliate of al-Qaeda in Syria.

The list with a total of 13 requirements was transferred by Kuwait, that mediates in the conflict. Qatar has ten days to the demands.



Al-Jazeera will not stop its work let us know that they have Friday, in response to the requirement.

The requirement is no more than an attempt freedom of expression in the Gulf region to suppress, so informed al-Jazeera Friday in the Qatari capital Doha. Giles Trendle, head of the English Department of the transmitter, called on all Governments to respect freedom of expression.
