UAE accuses Qatar fighters of flying near passenger jet

A Qatari Air Force Mirage 2000 jet fighter

As stated by the Qatari Civil Aviation Authority, the military planes were on a routine flight when a UAE military aircraft entered Qatar's airspace without permission in the same area as the UAE civilian plane.

Qatari fighter jets have once again encroached the airspace of UAE civilian aircraft flying to Bahrain, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority announced.

Bahrain's Foreign Affairs Ministry on Sunday condemned the interception of an Emirati civilian aircraft "Airbus 320" by Qatari fighter jets.

It said the plane was Etihad flight EY322 from the Saudi city of Dammam to Abu Dhabi and was flying at a height of 250,000 feet.

The Dubai-based newspaper Gulf News identified the affected flight as Emirates flight EK837.

"The United Arab Emirates has unfortunately been manipulating the facts to inflame and mislead the global community", Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) said in a statement according to Qatar's state news agency.

Qatar responded shortly after by denying the claims, saying Abu Dhabi is "threatening air safety and security".

Bahrain's politicisation of the incident "is a cause for concern and condemnation, especially as it is related to the application of worldwide standards aimed at the security and safety of civilians".

It pointed out that the continued lack of professionalism, non-response and bias by the air navigation service provider in the Kingdom of Bahrain - at a time when neutrality is supposed to be honored since it is responsible for managing the navigation in this region - is a cause for concern and condemnation, especially as it is related to the application of worldwide standards aimed at the security and safety of civilians.

Tensions between the UAE and Qatar have been running high since summer 2017, when Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and imposed travel and economic sanctions on it, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs.
