Iran Revolutionary Guards ‘protecting Qatar’s Sheikh Tamim inside his palace’

:: Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are allegedly protecting the Qatari emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani inside his palace, Egyptian sources said on Wednesday.

The sources added that the Revolutionary Guards arrived in Qatar under the cover of training.

Gulf states that have cut diplomatic ties with Qatar in recent days accuse it of having a strong relationship with Iran, despite apparent differences in Syria.

Sheikh Tamim’s statements last month, in which he said there was “no wisdom in harboring hostility toward Iran,” confirmed previous reports that discussed in detail the tight security relationship between both countries, despite the existing tensions between Doha and most members of the Gulf Cooperation Council.

Several countries including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt severed their ties with Qatar on Monday.

Each country has issued a separate statement explaining the reasoning behind their decisions, but all agreed on Qatar’s role in supporting terrorism and interfering in the internal affairs of other states.
