Bahrain Says Two Qatari Warplanes Flew above its Territorial Waters

Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain said on Monday (March 26, 2018) that two Qatari warplanes were detected flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet above the international waters, within Bahrain Flight Information Region (FIR) without prior authorization.

The two fighters flew under a UAE Airbus 320, with ident/call sign of A6HMS, en route from Fujairah to Rome, prompting Bahrain's Air Surveillance to intervene and take the necessary measures to ensure aviation safety.

The Emirati A320 jet then flew at a higher altitude of 35,000 feet to avoid the Qatari fighters, which consistently violate international conventions and jeopardize the movement of civil aviation in the region.

The quartet countries and Qatar have complained about similar accidents since the eruption of Gulf dispute in June 2017.
