The Qatari government paid between $700 million to $1 billion in funding terrorist groups, said the UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash in a tweet on Sunday.
Gargash added that these terrorist groups include Hezbollah, Popular Mobilization Forces and al-Nusra.
The minister said that Doha cannot continue to refute this fact in light of piling evidence.
“Supporting extremism and terrorism is the center of the problem,” he said in his tweet.
Qatar has been accused of funding terrorist groups by several countries including India, Bahrain and the US.
“Qatar has a mixed record. We know that they provided financial support to the Muslim Brotherhood, terrorism, Hamas, al-Qaeda and the Taliban,” said former US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who also served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency under Barack Obama.
