Published: Updated:

The Arab coalition has said it has suspended Qatar’s participation in all efforts to restore legitimacy in Yemen, a source confirmed to Al Arabiya News Channel.

The coalition said it severed all ties with Qatar given the latter’s dealings with militias and its support of al-Qaeda and ISIS as reasons behind the decision, a statement read.

The decision comes as news that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt announced they have severed all ties with Qatar over its policies.
