Question about English (US)

Thank you for reading.
I have some questions about the following sentences. Please help me out.
1) Is "a key US ally in the region" Qatar?
2) I feel a bit tricky about the usage of "forcing". Does that part mean as; Therefore, many within his own Administration and the GOP had to question the move publicly?

Just ten days later, against the advice of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis, the United States supported the Saudi and UAE-led blockade of Qatar. On June 6, 2017 President Trump shockingly supported the blockade of *a key US ally in the region*, forcing many within his own Administration and the GOP to question the move publicly.
