Published on Aug 5, 2019

Saudi journalist Adnan Muhammad said in a July 23, 2019 show on Saudi 24 TV (Saudi Arabia) that Qatar cannot be discussed without mentioning its relationship to terrorism. He said that Qatar has played an important role in the Somali Al-Shabab movement, which is a branch of Al-Qaeda, and he pointed out that Al-Shabab's deputy leader, Mohamed Said Atom, lives in Doha. He also mentioned former senior Al-Jazeera correspondent Fahad Yasin, who recently became the head of Somalia's National Security and Intelligence Agency. Muhammad said that Qatar has penetrated Somalia's politics and that it provides Al-Shabab with weapons, training, and protection because of its commitment to help Al-Qaeda and its branches.
