Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency even hinted that the twin strikes were a result of US President Donald Trump's recent visit to Saudi Arabia. The efforts by these countries on Qatar's behalf has raised questions about the future possibility of Doha aligning more closely with them and edging away from the GCC and US. Qatar vehemently denies the accustations.

Kuwait's ruler, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, travelled from the UAE to Qatar on Wednesday after visiting Saudi Arabia the day before to resolve the crisis.

"Qataris are questioning whether this is going to end up in seeing a change in leadership itself in Qatar", he said. "So it is a very serious issue".

It also cited Qatar's "ongoing policies that rattle the security and sovereignty of the region as well as its manipulation and evasion of its commitments and treaties" as the reason for its actions. Its foreign minister has struck a defiant tone in interviews, even after anxious residents emptied grocery stores in its capital of Doha as Saudi Arabia has blocked trucks carrying food from entering the country.

In another development, the central African nation of Chad has recalled its ambassador from Qatar, joining Saudi Arabia and other nations who have moved to isolate the Gulf country over allegations it supports terrorism.

Russia has dismissed allegations that Russian hackers helped spark the diplomatic crisis around Qatar, after CNN reported that United States officials believed they planted a false news story.

As it stands the pipeline remains open and gas continues to flow through the UAE to Oman, with no indication it will be cut, a source told the news service.

"That hack showed the UAE's real concerns and that what we really say in our private emails is what we say publicly", Gargash said.
