Shooting and explosions: reported coup attempt in Qatar


Urgent reports are received from Qatar about an attempted armed coup in the country. Information comes about the shootout, as well as several explosions.


Initially, a terrorist attack was reported. However, then local sources said that it was a coup attempt.

Military helicopters were lifted into the sky. They circled over the capital of the country - Doha.

According to Middle Eastern media, the coup attempt may be related to anti-corruption cases, which are investigated by local law enforcement officers. The order to investigate cases involving the names of large Qatari businessmen and politicians was personally given by the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad at-Thani.

According to some reports, an order to investigate corruption schemes could have been voiced in connection with pressure from Washington. Earlier, US authorities said they “suspected Qatar of corruption schemes”, as a result of which the country got the 2022 World Cup.

Meanwhile, the Saudi press stated that the Qatar authorities had allegedly ordered "to conceal information about an attempted coup in the country." It is stated that the official Doha ordered the criminal prosecution of citizens of the country, which will post online materials about explosions and shootings.

      The rebellion on Socotra

      Suleimani
      4 May, 3: 43


      The growing gap within the Saudi coalition intervening in Yemen has led to new clashes between puppets dependent on Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
      After the separatists of southern Yemen occupied part of the country's southern coast and most of Aden, they began operations against the Hadists on the island of Socotra, which the UAE wants to annex.
      Relying on the airport, where the UAE light armored vehicles are located, the southern separatists began to attempt to drive the Hadists out of the administrative center of Hadibo, but were discarded.
      Once again, the invaders began to fight among themselves, and this happens in a situation when in some provinces of Yemen, the Hussites are conducting offensive operations and crowding out the Hadists (only in the province of Al-Jawf over the past 1,5 months, the Hussites have liberated 3,5 thousand square kilometers territory). But it is already quite obvious that the UAE is pursuing purely separate goals that are associated with the split of Yemen and the capture of Socotra. What will happen to Saudi Arabia and the remaining Yemen, the emirates care little.
      The Saudi Air Force launched several warning bombing attacks near the positions of the southern separatists and threatens that if they continue to try to take Khadibo, they will be bombed seriously.

      Part of the personnel of one of the Hadist brigades rebelled and refused to obey the "corrupt Hadi government and its military command", and instead of the flag of Yemen, they raised the flag of the southern separatists. I won’t be surprised if the commanders of the 1st Marine Brigade were bribed. The rebels took away armored vehicles and small arms from some parts of the Hadists, including units where Al-Isla’s influence was great.

      In fact, Saudi Arabia has to provide direct military support to the Hadists so that the "allies" from the UAE and their puppets do not expel the Hadists from the island, and it’s not the fact that this will turn out that the Yemen ulcer is becoming more and more toxic to Saudi Arabia, but no reasonable way out of all this can be traced. A very clear illustration of what happens when you count on a "small victorious war" and you get your Afghanistan.

        Yemeni ulcer is becoming more and more toxic in Saudi Arabia

        Such an ulcer can also bring the Saudis to the grave ... I am amazed at the ability of the Hussites to wage war under the exceptional conditions of material superiority of the Saudis ... neither the latest weapons nor mercenaries helped the Saudi clan defeat the Hussites.

                Actually, the diplomat from the Russian embassy and two Russian citizens who were in this country on a short-term business trip did nothing on their own initiative.

                As for me personally, I would have taken it if I had been adequately prepared for this, and provided with everything necessary.

      There is not only an American, but also a Turkish base. Emir is Erdogan's best friend in the region. Actually, in the well-known crisis, when the Saudis and the UAE had already pulled out troops and were preparing to force Qatar to apologize for Doha itself, the Turks were the only ones who defended them. And the ardor of the Saudis was asleep as soon as the Turks began to unload in Qatar.





      It seems that the Turks immediately joined in the work to protect the emir. According to rumors, evacuation to the base was even considered. But the guards and the ripened loyal units fought back.
      Now there will be an eastern process of searching for the guilty and the purges of law enforcement agencies, which:
      a) overslept the plot.
      b) probably knew and waited for the new owner.

        They have not money, but securities. Like Elon Musk. He’s a billionaire while his company is worth something, but if he tries to cache at least 10%. His Tesla will collapse by 900 percent and he will immediately become just a multimillionaire, and he will have to be a multimillion. So let's see how they say billions cannot be earned can only come up with.

      but there are countries in the Middle East, wherever it’s still blazing ?! .... - https://youtu.be/AazQSbY95yc?t=133 (where from 00-20, 02-12 timing in my opinion most interesting (!) because it came true !! ) Yes, and it’s called well, - "a distraction" (well, at least - honestly).

    Earlier, US authorities said they “suspected Qatar of corruption schemes”, as a result of which the country got the 2022 World Cup.

    This is something new for Americans. Usually they overthrow governments under calls for democracy

    What uncle Sam is this man?

    In the oceans you can’t get overboard from tankers with gratuitous oil, but it still muddles water all over the globe in places of compact and low-cost hydrocarbon production ...

    Qatar is mainly gas.

    And it would seem, moreover, that here they began to finish building up the SP-2, since the pipe-laying machine had a short route through half the globe and under good military cover almost reached the spot?

    It seems to me that it matters here that in Libya, Haftar is suffering greatly from failure. As he lost 2 cities there, the Arabs immediately made it clear to some that they were “worried”.

    Interestingly, is Qatar fighting for independence from the United States, or is the United States trying to seize Qatar by taking control of it, how did they try to take control of Turkey in due time? We are waiting for the news.

    Kuwaiti police suppressed the riots that broke out in the camp, where Egyptian workers who were in the country illegally and detained due to a visa violation were awaiting the return to their homeland.

    Qatar is a medical term, and it is always not good for the stomach and intestines. We wish to become a malware for him, both for the KSA and for the United States, so that el-Uded would be evacuated.
