Analysts criticize Qatar after supporting Hezbollah with $500 mln

Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad

Political analysts and writers have called for imposing Arab and UN guardianship on Qatar and holding it accountable, in case it resumed its support for terrorist groups.


The call came after Doha announced on Monday supporting the Lebanese economy with $500 million following participation of Prince Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani in the Beirut Summit. Observers agreed that the summit was held upon Iranian orders, backed by Hezbollah, which dominates the political decision with its weapons.


Qatari Foreign Minister Mohamed bin Abdul-Rahman said Qatar will purchase the Lebanese government’s assets, estimated at $500 million, claiming this would support the Lebanese economy.


Observers said that the Qatari minister is aware that the ongoing support of Hezbollah with money will make its ‘fake’ wishes unachievable, increase the division among the Lebanese and weaken its economy.


In June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties and transport lines with Qatar because of Doha's support for terrorism.
