MATTIS ON QATAR CRISIS: RUSSIA 'TRYING TO BREAK' WORLD ALLIANCES

The United States’ largest military base in the Middle East is in Qatar. It’s the forward headquarters of U.S. Central Command and the staging area for much of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.


Pentagon officials have repeatedly said current operations at the base have been unaffected by the crisis, but Tillerson said Friday that the blockade is “hindering U.S. military actions in the region.”
