Have Qatari agents been hacking Egyptian officials’ emails?

Have Qatari agents been hacking Egyptian officials’ emails? Egyptian officials were reportedly among “hundreds” of victims of cyber attacks by hackers linked to the Qatari government, US lobbyist Elliott Broidy claims, according to the National. Broidy, who has been vocal in advocating against Qatar’s policies, “has accused the Doha government of hacking his accounts, stealing his emails, and distributing them to US media and other outlets through lobbyists and PR firms that it hired.” Senior officials from the UAE, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain were also reportedly victims of the hackers.
