The US administration told Congress last month that it would sell $ 3 billion worth of weapons to Qatar, including Apache attack planes and related offensive equipment, and Congress is expected to approve the deal.

According to US law, the US administration needs congressional approval for arms sales. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, head of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee of the US Congress, confirmed that there was intelligence that Qatar was involved in supporting terrorist groups in the Middle East such as Hamas and Al-Qaeda According to Arab media reports.

“The idea that Qatar is hosting terrorists from Afghanistan and the Brotherhood is no longer acceptable to the current US administration,” Ross said at a hearing on the assessment of US-Qatari relations held earlier.

On Tuesday, a US congressman accused Al Jazeera of being a platform for spreading extremist ideas, a spy for the Qatari regime in Washington and providing funding and safe haven to terrorist groups.

In an article in The Washington Examiner, House member Jack Bergman said it was interesting that US allies in the region had long concluded when they boycotted Qatar in June 2017 because of its continued support for terrorism.
