The Command of the Coalition to Support the Legitimacy in Yemen announced on Monday the suspension of Qatar’s participation over its practices that consolidate terrorism.

In a statement, the coalition accused Qatar of supporting organizations in Yemen such as al-Qaeda and ISIS.

It also said Doha was dealing with coup militias in Yemen in contravention of the coalition’s objectives, which mainly are the fight against terror.

The decision came after Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed their diplomatic ties with Qatar.
