Qatar demands action against Saudi threat to air passengers

Qatar has lodged a protest with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) against the siege countries using their satellite TV channels to intimidate passengers flying Qatar Airways.

A report broadcast on August 9 by Al Arabiya TV, a Saudi channel based in Dubai, referring to what it called the right of the siege countries to shoot down any Qatar Airways passenger aircraft that flew over their airspace.

Qatar said, “this televised report constitutes a clear and serious violation of international treaties and conventions, particularly the 1944 Chicago Convention, the international air traffic service agreement and international air law”.
