The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has funded media and incitement campaigns against Qatar and Turkey, an investigative TV report has revealed.

According to the report by the Doha-based Al-Jazeera television, the UAE has run a digital project called “Arab Intelligence” to target the regimes of several states, including Turkey and Qatar.

The report cited what it called leaked messages by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry regarding coordination with the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to attack Qatar and its economic and media institutions at international arenas.

It said a network of 271 fake Twitter accounts linked to Dot Dev Company were blocked. This company reportedly operated in the UAE and Egypt with a view to targeting Qatar and other countries, including Iran.

According to the report, Twitter also blocked 4,248 accounts for targeting Qatar with thousands of misleading and fake tweets.

The investigative report also exposed that the UAE had funded think-tanks in Washington to incite against Qatar, in coordination with the Saudi-led bloc.

According to the report, Abu Dhabi promoted several Twitter hashtags for the overthrow of the ruling regime in Qatar.

There was no comment from the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia or Bahrain on the allegation.

The four countries severed relations with Doha in mid-2017 and imposed a land, sea and air blockade, accusing Qatar of supporting terrorism and meddling in their internal affairs. Qatar denies the charges and has voiced openness to dialogue to end the impasse.
