Protests held outside Qatari embassy in Brussels

BRUSSELS, July 16, 2017

Demonstrators gathered outside Qatar's embassy in Brussels on Saturday to protest against Doha's support for terrorism and to express rejection of its approach to fuel conflicts around the world, a report said.

The demonstrators demanded that Qatar must halt funding of extremist groups in the Arab region and in the European countries and change its policy of funding and harbouring terrorist groups, reported Wam, the Emirates official news agency.

They waved signs that read it is time the world should move against the states that support extremism, including Qatar, and suggested that such support has had a tragic impact on Europe and on the whole world.

They also highlighted that terrorism had distorted the image of Islam, due to the policies of the states that support and fund extremist groups.

The demonstrators expressed support to the steps taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Arab Republic of Egypt, to confront the Qatari provocations and policies to foment tensions in the region and in the world.
