In Qatar, the benchmark index also saw a 0.1% drop, with Qatar Commercial Bank and Dukhan Bank both experiencing declines. However, the Saudi Arabia stock index showed a slight uptick, driven by gains in sectors such as telecommunication and pipes.

It is advisable for investors to proceed with caution until there is more clarity on future production targets.
