The pilot of one of the planes had to conduct a manoeuvre to avoid collision with the Qatari fighter jets
Abu Dhabi:The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) condemned the dangerous action by two Qatari jet fighters, which on Monday approached two civil aircrafts registered in the UAE while they were the airspace of Bahrain.
The pilot of one of the planes had to conduct a manoeuvre to avoid collision with the Qatari fighter jets.
The authority said in a statement: “This is a provocative action by Qatar and is a clear insistence on making light of the safety of civilian aircrafts and air aviation.”
GCAA said it condemns such irresponsible acts towards civilian air traffic that follow specific civilian routes, which are known to the International Civil Aviation Organisation. The authority stressed the UAE’s right to take all measures that are guaranteed by the international law.
