Every Thursday, we bring you the latest updates on the blockade and GCC Crisis. Here's what happened last week: GCC Crisis Updates Week 182.
Amid an optimistic Gulf atmosphere about the imminent end of the Gulf crisis, Bahrain is issuing actions that raise surprising and noteworthy question marks, according to Al-Sharq.
On November 25th, the Ministry of Interior's maritime units stopped two Bahraini boats after being spotted inside Qatari waters, and Manama justified the incident by saying that the two boats had lost contact and that their equipment had been disrupted while conducting a naval exercise, although the monitoring site of the two Bahraini boats was contrary to the site of the previously announced exercise.
Yesterday, less than two weeks later, coast and border security patrols suspended a Bahraini cruiser in the Fasht al-Dibel area within the 1.3 nautical miles of Qatari waters, this time with three sailors on board the cruiser, fishing by the Qaraqair, one of them a Bahraini national and two Asians, and were referred, in addition to the seizures, to the competent prosecutor to complete the legal proceedings against
Despite gulf and international optimism, despite the gulf and global optimism, despite indications that the Gulf crisis and the promises announced by his Highness the Emir of Kuwait and the welcome of the Gulf States, President Trump, Arab and foreign states and many international organisations, are continuing to publish reports that disturb the winds of the positive atmosphere that are blowing over the region, and ask a big question:
Why is Bahrain deliberately sabotaging efforts to sabotage reconciliation efforts and resolve? And why would you want it to be the solution to the demolition, even though everyone agreed that the Gulf crisis was on its way to being resolved?
In the context of its usual activities of monitoring and protecting the Qatari territorial waters, the patrols stopped a Bahraini cruiser in the "Fasht Al-Dibel" area within the borders of the Qatari waters by 1.3 nautical miles, as tweeted by the Ministry of Interior
Coasts and Borders Security patrols found that there were three sailors on board, one Bahraini national and the rest from one of the Asian nationalities as they were fishing using traps. They are referred to the competent prosecution to complete the legal procedures against them
Anchor for Al Jazeera Arabic Ghada Oueiss has filed a lawsuit against the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, and some other officials. She has accused them all of targeting her in a 'hacking and leaking' operation, and also threatening her life, according to a news report on the Al-Quds Al-Arabi website.
Ghada, who has filed the lawsuit in Florida's southern region, has revealed that the Saudi Crown Prince (better known as MBS), and some Saudi, Emirati and US officials, carried out an operation that's aim was to undermine her personality along with her career as a journalist. The reason the operation was carried out was that Oueiss often made critical statements and published reports that criticised both the Saudi and the Emirati governments.
