Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations like the United Arab Emirates were deeply suspicious of Obama's diplomatic detente with Iran, which culminated in the 2015 nuclear deal. Kuwait has given Qatar a list of demands from Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations that includes shutting down Al-Jazeera and cutting diplomatic ties to Iran.

The current crisis was probably precipitated by a number of factors.
Soon after Tillerson's statement however, Trump criticised Doha again.
Egyptian President Abdel Fateh el-Sisi, who overthrew Morsi in a 2013 military coup, has since "moved brutally to quash dissent and eviscerate the Brotherhood", imprisoning three Al Jazeera English journalists in the process on the grounds that the network supported the Muslim Brotherhood. Qatar is an outlier, however, because it walks a fine balance with Iran due to shared interests in offshore gas fields in the Persian Gulf. The Sheikh also made clear that Qatar could survive "forever" under sanctions. The bloc also imposed air, sea and land blockades. The Saudis dispute this, stating that they are imposing an embargo within their rights.
Officials have also been quoted by media as saying that Iran could ship at least 45 tonnes of dairy products to Qatar.

Mardi, ce dernier l'aurait carrément appelée par son prénom et lui aurait demandé " si elle voulait l'embrasser ". Repoussé par la jeune fille et des passants, il s'est écrié: " mais pourquoi tu ne m'aimes pas? ".
In a June 14 report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said that the "spat" with Qatar has caused logistical and operational headaches for lifters of Qatari crude, condensate and LNG-although supplies have yet to be disrupted.
Earlier this month, on the first morning of the IATA AGM in Cancun, word quickly spread that Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker-who had been seen amiably socializing with fellow airline CEOs at the event's opening reception the previous evening-had left on a private business jet bound for Qatar.
Ankara has also deployed troops to a Turkish military base in Qatar. Turkey and Iran are making plans to airlift supplies to Qatar to alleviate the effects of the "blockade".
In a statement carried by QNA, Qatar's Defense Ministry announced the arrival of the second group of Turkish troops to the Al-Udeid Airbase - located southeast of Qatari capital Doha - on Thursday morning.
Qatar has welcomed a recent USA position questioning the motives of Gulf allies for their blockade on Doha. Furthermore, it was announced on Thursday, July 15 that the US had signed a $12 billion with Qatar for F-15 jets. It is allied with Sunni-led Saudi Arabia in attempting to prop up oil prices - so far unsuccessfully - and with Shia-led Iran in propping up Mr.al-Assad.
Designations: Qatar hands all those terrorist designated and those requested by four countries (who wrote demands) and terrorist elements on United States and worldwide lists, freeze their assets, and don't harbor more elements in future, offer Intel on members especially related to movement, finances. Outside countries look on with concern; the region around Qatar is typically relatively stable and calm, so destabilization could have global political ramifications.
