Alleged UAE hacking 'unfortunate,' violation of law

Alleged UAE hacking 'unfortunate,' violation of law

The report has quoted anonymous USA intelligence officials who said that officials of Emirati government discussed the plan on May 23 and after that on the next day the story came up in Qatari News Agency's website where Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani was complimenting Iran and said that Qatar has healthy relations with Israel.

In June, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt severed ties with and imposed a trade and diplomatic embargo on Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism.

That came after Qatar's emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al-Thani, was quoted online calling Iran - a key rival to Saudi Arabia - an Islamic power and describing Qatari relations with Israel as good.

Qatar said its emir had never given the speech, and that the story had been planted electronically, but its allies were outraged, and one of the most serious feuds in years between Western-aligned Gulf states began.

Swiss news network The Local said a fake news story quoting Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino had been posted on a copycat website on Saturday.

The Washington Post reported on Sunday that the UAE helped arrange the hacking.
