Assad in unexpected terror allegation against Qatar
Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad dealt a heavy and an unexpected blow on Qatar when he explicitly accused it of supporting terrorism and harboring terrorists.
Bashar said in an interview with a Greek newspaper that Qatar, America, France, Britain, and Turkey bear responsibility for the war in Syria by supporting terrorism.
Assad's sudden accusation of the Hamad regime’s support for terrorists is yet another global voice against Qatar. The Trump administration also recently called on Qatar to stop funding pro-Iranian militias.
Assad’s charge has come at a time when Doha is seeking a secret alliance with Assad in post-war Syria where Qatar will have a position of Influence on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean.
The alliance is backed by Russia and Iran, according to a report by British journalist Robert Fisk, known for his relations with Syria since the late Syrian President Hafez Al-Assad.
