Qatar’s lies exposed

Saudi diplomats across the world are speaking out to clarify facts that Qatar is trying to hide and obscure. When Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that the King Salman Center for Humanitarian Aid and Relief is willing to support Qatar, he was addressing Qatari lies that speak about a siege.

The aim of relief is to aid countries that suffer from siege and organized starvation. However, Qatar refused the term “relief” and continued to use the word “siege.” Isn’t relief meant for countries that are besieged?

The Qatari rhetoric has been confused since the beginning of this crisis. Its justifications, evidence and arguments have not been steady.
