Emir of Qatar and King of Bahrain

Arab newspapers have reported on the accusations leveled by Qatar against Bahrain regarding the Bahraini air force fighters infiltrating Qatari airspace.

Qatar informed the UN Security Council and the Secretary-General of the United Nations about “air violations by four Bahraini fighter jets that penetrated Qatari airspace on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.”

For its part, the Bahraini Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied Qatar’s accusations, describing it as “an allegation that is not responsible, dishonorable and unrelated to the truth.”

“Air riot”

Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper says in its editorial: “In an escalation step that raises the level of tension in the Arab Gulf, four Bahraini fighters infiltrated Qatar’s airspace and its territorial waters, prompting the authorities in Doha to inform the UN Security Council and the UN Secretary-General about this violation of its airspace as a threat to the security of the region.” .
