  • Qatar-Turkey trade grows by 30 per cent since Gulf crisis

The incident affected a UAE flag carrier en route to the Bahrani capital, the country's civil aviation authorities were quoted as saying. Four UAE-based airlines - Emirates, Etihad, flydubai and Air Arabia - operate flights to Bahrain.

Alya al-Thani, Qatar's ambassador to the United Nations, said the airspace invasions constituted a "flagrant violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the State of Qatar, as well as a flagrant violation of the provisions of global law, conventions, charters and worldwide norms".

It went on to describe the alleged interceptions as "repeated, flagrant violations of worldwide laws and conventions".

In early June, a group of Arab states led by Saudi Arabia abruptly severed diplomatic relations with Qatar and imposed a blockade on the tiny Gulf emirate, accusing it of supporting terrorism. "It would run counter to Qatari government policy to respect global obligations even when dealing with companies or private individuals from the blockading countries".

Just like the original trailer , this one highlights the terrible experiences the superheroes will face when they battle Thanos. Before Taika took the helm, the Thor movies had fans but it was certainly not held up as among the best.

Qatar strongly rejected the claims, describing them as a "systematic attack" by the UAE to draw attention away from its own violations of Qatari airspace.

He said Bahraini radar, as well as crew and passengers on board, saw the military aircraft, "which constituted a clear and explicit threat to the lives of innocent civilians".

Qatar denied it intercepted the planes.

"I am now in Abu Dhabi as a guest of Sheikh Mohammed, but actually not in the position of a guest but rather as a detainee", Abdullah said, apparently referring to Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahayan.

"The claims by Emirati media outlets were made amid an ongoing diplomatic crisis between Qatar and three neighbouring Gulf states plus Egypt".

Bahrain, one of the countries boycotting Qatar, said Emirates Flight EK837 was intercepted.

Qatari officials, for their part, have strenuously denied the allegations.

Spokesperson of Qatar's Foreign Ministry Lulwah al Khater said Qatar is now monitoring the situation, as a video released by Sheikh Abdullah bin Ali al Thani on Sunday said he is not free to leave Abu Dhabi, in the UAE, Xinhua news agency reported on Monday, quoting Qatar News Agency (QNA).

In the video, Sheikh Abdullah said: "I am now in Abu Dhabi". Turkey operates a military base in Qatar, and Turkish troops are deployed in the Tariq bin Ziyad Base under an agreement signed in 2014.
