"The suspension comes after the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Egypt said they are cutting ties with Qatar amid escalating tensions over accusations that Doha sponsors terrorism" states a Gulf News report.
The UAE has taken a step further by issuing a 48-hours ultimatum for all Qatar diplomats to exit the country.
The State news agency WAM on the other hand in a statement said Abu Dhabi accused Doha of “supporting, funding, and embracing terrorism, extremism, and sectarian organizations.”
In retaliation, Qatar Airways has ceased flight to Saudi Arabia.
