Qatari climber Fahad Abdulrahman Badar has succeeded in climbing the peak of Broad Peak in the Karakoram mountain range. In a Tweet, he said "I had the honor to raise the flag of Qatar over the top of Mount Broad Peak, the 12th summit in the world, with a height of 8,047 meters. This is the third summit of the peaks of 8000 meters that I had reached. This summit is considered one of the most difficult challenges because of its remote location, the nature of its snow-rich climate, and the huge size of its summit, which requires extra effort to reach."

Speaking about the descent, he said "During the descent, there were several events, which led to the death of one climber and the rescue of others, as a result of which I ran out of extra oxygen, and I spent a night at the summit in the snow and extreme cold, and I suffered an injury to my fingers."
