Default Failed Military Coup in Qatar?

Errr... really?

The failed coup began when a senior officer in the Qatari Army formed a group from colleagues in the Qatari military, to which they declared a military rebellion in favor of a Qatari political figure who is a very influential figure in the higher decision-making circles of Doha.

Seems only to be reported in the Arab press:

I guess it's not impossible - it was only in 1995 that the current Sheikh Khalifah came into power after a coup d'etat?

Any of our Qatari posters know more?
