BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:15 P.M.) – The governments of Qatar and Syria may not have diplomatic relations at this time, but Damascus’ move to allow Doha to use their airspace has helped the small Gulf nation immensely.

Qatar, who has arguably been the biggest supporter of the Syrian opposition, cutoff ties with Syria in 2011 and began funding and arming the opponents of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

However, due to Qatar’s close ties with Iran, Doha has been granted access to Syria’s airspace for their domestic flights.

Since the announcement by the Syrian Ministry of Transportation, Qatar Airways has used Syrian airspace on a daily basis, putting to end their long flights to the Mediterranean region.

While this is a major boost for Qatar, a source in Damascus says that the two countries still have no plans to reconcile.

The source added that Iran played a major role in negotiating Qatar’s access to Syrian airspace, as they are currently in a Middle East coalition with the Gulf nation and Turkey.

As the Qataris have their biggest enemy in fellow Sunni state, Saudi Arabia, to it’s West, having a friendly Shite Iran to it’s east and a friendly north-western Iraq/Syria makes sense.

would make even more sense if they stopped to support MB morons in Syria – and elsewhere, of course.

And the Qatari supported jihadis in Syria were less to do with the local MB and more that they were extremist foreign Muslims looking to recreate their version of the caliphate. Basically, dreamers and mercenaries looking for thrills and power and being funded, trained and supplied with weapons both by the cynical West and the various Gulf monarchies with the aim of not just overthrowing Assad but as a first stage to getting to Iran. Iran responded with the IRGC and Hezbollah to stem Syrian losses until Russia unexpectedly joined the party. The rest is history.

These are Arabs. They only do things that are expedient and/or of necessity. As Qataris’, your badder. bigger, Sunni cousin next door, Saudi Arabia is threatening you. That necessitates that you have a backup plan which includes making up with what you regard as a heretical neighbour, Iran, if only to have cover your back and to provide you with an exit strategy.

Khamenei is the Farsi translator for Sayeed Qutb. He’s Ikhwan as the al-Thanis’. Jihad is ecumenical, baby!
Any way :
“Designating The Muslim Brotherhood A Terror Group Signals Needed Foreign Policy Realignment. The Trump administration’s proposed designation of Muslim Brotherhood as a terror organization is a recalibration of American foreign policy that was a long time coming.”

Nope Joe Yousef, Saudis pulled the plug for a while now : things have changed since Salman is in charge. The Syrian mess was to impose the Qatari gas pipeline to Turkey.
The Bani-Thani = Ikhwan’R’Us
They are one of the most poisonous things in the area.

So Syria was destroyed because she refused the Qatari gas pipeline, Qatar pays terrorists to destroy the country for 8 years, now Syria helps Qatar to break isolation since all other Arab nations have understood how poisonous Qatar is! The only bomb that ever blew in Qatar was when GRU liquidated Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev, the former Chechen “president” and al-Qaeda leader for the “country” who later became a “refugee” in Qatar, organising the Moscow theatre hostage takng from here… How funny Qatar is saying nothing about Trump about to declare the Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) a FTO while Turkey and Iran (!!!)… Read more »

Qatar did until their bigger, fellow terrorist-funder, cousin Saudi, turned on them. Something on the lines of “Falling out among thieves” comes to mind.

Nope : Qatar PUBLICLY told Saudis, when these decided the Syrian mess had gone too far, that they would go on supporting extremists in Syria. The Bani-Saud are MoFo, for sure, but they’re not suicidal and very elastic. Tamim al-Thani, just like daddy, is in the Ikhwan, just like Erdogan and Khamenei… Trump is about to ban the Muslim Brotherhood, BTW, we’re seeing all the infected media (CNN, NY Times, Washngton Post = Kashoghi was Ikhwan) coming out in defence of the Ikhwan, just like Erdogan and Khamenei. You may have to practise real politik. Obama was totally foolish by… Read more »

“as they are currently in a Middle East coalition with the Gulf nation and Turkey.” Leith Abou Falafel shut the f**k up ! Leith Abou Fadel = muslim pro Saudi-terrorist LIER. Iran is currently in a Middle-East coalition with Russia, Syria and Iraq and even with China and Venezuela. Who helped the Syrian army recently to cleanse the Eastern border ? Iraqi PMU, Iran and their allies, the truth. Who are the main nations that have the agreement with the Syrian government to reconstruct Syria ? Russia, China and Iran.

Qatar, Los socios Monarcas enemigos de Irán le dieron la espalda, ahora debe cooperar con Siria. Primero dejar de financiar a los terroristas a través del gobierno Turco y segundo establecer relaciones bilaterales con el gobierno Sirio.
