Saudi Arabia and Bahrain cut ties with Qatar?

Key Arab League nations, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE, have severed diplomatic ties with Qatar after Bahrain said it was cutting all ties and contacts with Doha. Qatar is accused of backing terrorist groups and meddling in other countries’ affairs.

About 50% of you will say that this is no big deal so consider yourself excused from this discussion.

Why do I get the feeling that Iran just won big with this announcement.
