Qatar’s next target, Mauritania
A visit from the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad, and everything went according to the plan, Qatar and Mauritania singed at least 12 agreement to boost ties between both countries.
But things went ugly when the Sheikh Hamad of Qatar started to “lecture” president Mohamed weld Abdel Aziz of Mauritania on the “reform” and the importance to open a dialogue with the Islamists movement in Mauritania, particularly Sheikh mohamed alhasan weld aldedew. The Qatari Sheikh also asked for help to pressure the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to stop the bloodshed.
President Aziz of Mauritania rejected Qatar’s requests, attacked Qatar and expressed his solidarity with the Syrian president Assad, saying that the so-called revolutions are plots. Leaving the country without the official presidential-escort, the Qatari delegation took this as an insult and violation to the diplomatic protocol.
Out of the sudden, terrorists and Al-Qaeda members started to gather Mauritania’s peaceful and remote cities:
The gathering of the three [Al-Qaeda] elements in one place has attracted the attention of central security agencies and warned them that things may not be fine.
A Qatari pretext to start the Libyan scenario in Mauritania?
