Snap, owner of Snapchat, has removed Al Jazeera from its platform in Saudi Arabia amid an ongoing feud between the Gulf States, Bloomberg reported.

Snap complies with the local laws in the countries where it operates, a spokeswoman for the company said Sunday, the report added.

Saudi Arabia, along with the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic and transport links with Qatar in June, accusing the country of supporting terrorism.

Among their demands was a request that Qatar close down Al Jazeera television and reduce its ties with Iran.

Saudi Arabian authorities advised Snap that Al Jazeera’s Discover publisher channel violates local laws. Other forms of the Qatari news service were already unavailable in the country.
