Jeddah — Three key figures with links to Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood are behind an orchestrated and malicious media campaign blaming Saudi authorities for the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

According to Al Arabiya English, Hatice Cengiz, self-claimed fiancée of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, has links with Qatar.

Cengiz’s Twitter feed reveals that she follows and endorses people who are critics of Saudi Arabia, organizations known to enjoy Qatari funding, Muslim Brotherhood members and Turkey’s ruling party.

She claims that she is Khashoggi’s fiancée, but the journalist’s family has denied ever hearing or knowing about her.

The second person is Turan Kışlakçı, a former employee of Turkey’s Anadolu News Agency. He has been constantly feeding false reports to the media.

Kışlakçı also serves as an official at the Youth Thought Forum in Istanbul, which is against Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Another figure who played a key role in the misreporting of Khashoggi’s disappearance was Al Jazeera correspondent Jamal Elshayyal.

Elshayyal appeared in images making the Brotherhood’s ‘rabiaa’ hand sign.

His brother is the director of a Qatari-funded news website Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, which is supervised by the Muslim Brotherhood in Doha and London and is run by Palestinian politician Azmi Bishara, the adviser to the Emir of Qatar.
