Qatar said Thursday that it had placed 28 people and entities on a terrorism list, including several Qatari nationals already blacklisted by rival Arab states who accuse Doha of supporting militants.The list, published by the Interior Ministry late Wednesday, includes 12 Qatari nationals, two Saudis, four Egyptians and two Jordanians. Named on the new Qatari list were two Qatari citizens who were described by the boycotting neighboring countries as financiers of the Islamist militant Nusra Front group, now known as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, fighting in Syria.Qatar had listed 13 alleged Al-Qaeda and Daesh militants in October in a joint move with the United States and five other Gulf Arab states, including the boycotters.While U.S. President Donald Trump initially accused Qatar of funding terrorism in the past "at a very high level," he thanked its ruler for combatting terrorism in a phone call in January.
