The Hamas terror organization responded to Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir's demand that Qatar cease supporting Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

In an official statement, Hamas said al-Jubeir's statements are a "blow to the Palestinian people and to the Arabic and Islamic nations, who place the Palestinian issues at the top of their priority lists and see Hamas as a movement which supports the legitimate war against the Israeli occupation."

The Muslim Brotherhood also rejected al-Jubeir's statement, saying the Saudi call to cease supporting Egyptian President Abd El-Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil Al-Sisi, and to refrain from following the advice offered by United Arab Emirates leaders.

Meanwhile, Iran blamed Saudi Arabia and the US for the Middle East rupture, and said they gave the "green light" allowing the recent terror attacks in Tehran.

A senior revolutionary official said both terror attacks occurred after interactions with the US, and that US "assassins" carried out the attacks against Iran.

Last Wednesday, ten people were killed in an attack on the Iranian Parliament, after three gunmen reportedly entered the parliament building and opened fire.

An additional shooting occurred at nearly the same time, at the Mausoleum of Imam Khomeini. One person was killed in the attack.
