The Saudi-Qatar Land Border Has Been Permanently Shut

Avatar

Qatar has only one land border, which is at Silwa.

According to the The Daily Sabah, the Salwa Border Gate has been closed upon a circular issued by the Saudi Customs Directorate.

The gate has been closed before, just two weeks after the diplomatic crisis broke out on the 5th of June. However, it was reopened in August for the passage of Qatari pilgrims and thereafter has remained open mainly for humanitarian reasons.

The Saudi-led boycott against Qatar has clearly listed its demands but so far Qatar has not accepted them.

Earlier this week, a GCC meeting in Kuwait failed to bring the standoff any closer to a resolution.
