The blacklist of terrorists and terror entities that was issued by the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt naming what they said the names and organisations funded for doing terror work by Qatar included four Libyan names and one entity.

The blacklist included Abdel Hakim Belhaj, the Chairman of Watan Political Party, Mohammed Al-Salabi, a popular cleric, Isamiel Mohammed Salabi, and Al-Sadiq Al-Gharyani, popular cleric and Libya’s Mufti.

The blacklist also named Benghazi Defence Brigades (BDB) as a terrorist entity funded by Qatar.

No comments by the named persons or organisations have been made yet.

The BDB is a force combining displaced fighters from Benghazi aiming at returning the city’s IDPs bacj to their houses after they were forced to leave due to the war between Operation Dignity led by Khalifa Haftar, an ally to the UAE, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, and the Benghazi Shura Council.
