Bahrain Mirror: The Qatari mission to the United Nations sent a new message to the UN Secretary-General informing him about violations of Qatar's sovereignty committed by the UAE and Bahrain during this year, Al-Jazeera revealed.

The letter said that a Bahraini military aircraft overflew the exclusive economic zone of Qatar on February 28. The plane was intercepted by a Qatari fighter jet before it left Qatari airspace.

On January 14, an Emirati military aircraft overflew Qatari territorial waters without permission from authorities in Doha, the letter further stated, adding that on February 25, another Emirati military aircraft approached the Qatari border before changing course after warnings were issued.

The Qatari mission to the UN called on the members of the Security Council to take the necessary steps to end the Bahraini and Emirati violations, asserting that the Qatari government reserved the right of response and defence, guaranteed by international covenants.

The Qatari attorney general Ali Al-Mari said that his country will sue the Arab quartet before international courts for the violations they have committed against Doha, its citizens and residents.

Al-Mari added in a press conference in Geneva that the compensation committee formed by Qatar since the first week of blockade against Doha received more than 10 thousand cases, indicating that most of the measures related to 4217 cases were settled before competent parties and international courts.

On June 5, 2017, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt broke off ties with Doha and imposed a land, sea, and air blockade on it over political accusations.
