SHOCKING! This is why Saudi Arabia plan to invade Qatar in 2017

Saudi plan to invade Qatar in 2017 aimed at usurping Doha’s wealth

The term invasion no longer exists in today’s dictionary of a civilised world. The very idea of an invasion has been banished by international legislations, condemned by the United Nations and shunned by the world of diplomacy.

So, the plans of Saudi Arabia to invade Qatar in the summer of 2017 represent a criminal mindset which has no place in modern day society. The plans for a military action against Qatar, a member state of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), are regrettable and shocking as they go against the very tenet of brotherhood and good neighbourliness. It was against this very basis on which the GCC was founded.

The plans, which were largely devised by the Saudi and UAE leaders, involved Saudi ground troops crossing the land border into Qatar, and, with military support from the UAE, advancing roughly 70 miles towards Doha.

The move would have plunged the entire region into chaos, jeopardising the security and stability of the Middle East.

However, the real reason behind the invasion plot was hugely deplorable. The aim of the blockading countries was to usurp Qatar’s wealth, take control of its huge natural resources and impose their agendas on Qatar.

The accusations that the blockading countries have tried to attribute to Qatar are nothing but to create justifications for achieving other larger goals that risk the future of the region and its people.


Around the time when Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and closed down their land, sea, and air borders with the country, or shortly afterwards, Qatari sources in Saudi Arabia discovered the invasion plan.

The then US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson acted after the Qatari government notified him and the US embassy in Doha. Tillerson then made a series of phone calls urging Saudi officials not to take military action against Qatar.

American Foreign Policy magazine published a report highlighting how US President Donald Trump rejected a proposal by Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on June 6 to invade Qatar – a day after the four countries imposed a blockade on Qatar.

The military option revealed by the Foreign Policy magazine reinforces what His Highness the Amir of State of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah said in a joint press conference with US President Donald Trump, at the White House on September 7, 2017, about the success of Kuwaiti mediation in stopping the military intervention against Qatar.
