Cairo - A dissident Muslim Brotherhood member expects Qatar and the MB group to incite violence in Egypt during the coming period after four Arab countries designated 69 individuals and 12 institutions with links to Qatar as terrorists.

Speaking exclusively to Egypt’s Masrawy news website on Friday, June 9, Tharwat El-Kherbawy said the terrorist list, which was issued earlier in the day, reflects a collective action by all Arab countries to face terrorist groups in the region.

“The Qatari regime has fallen into a deep tunnel. However, it thinks that Iran and Turkey could protect Qatari Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al-Than,” El-Kherbawy said.

Earlier in the day, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain collectively designated 69 individuals and 12 institutions that have financed terrorist organizations and received support from Qatar in the past.

Qatar had been a key supporter of Egypt's former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, and has provided financial and logistical support for many Brotherhood leaders who escaped Egypt following Morsi's ouster on July 3, 2013.

On Monday, June 5, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt broke diplomatic ties with Qatar and cut off air, sea and land access to the country over Doha’s support for terrorist groups.
