Qatar says second UAE plane violated its airspace
Qatar said on Saturday that a second United Arab Emirates military jet had violated its airspace, prompting a new complaint to the United Nations.
The plane was travelling from the UAE to Bahrain on January 3 when it flew over Qatar's special economic zone without prior authorization, the foreign ministry said. On Friday Doha said it had lodged a protest at the United Nations about a UAE fighter jet violating its airspace on December 21.
In its new complaint, Qatar said the repetition of this terrible incident was evidence of the UAE violating international law.
UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash on Friday denied the accusation relating to the first incident and said Abu Dhabi would send an official response.
