The military in the United Arab Emirates have been told not to do anything to worsen a seven-month diplomatic crisis with Qatar, Reuters quoted a senior military officer as saying on Tuesday.

UAE military aircraft would also fly alternative routes over Saudi Arabia to avoid the possibility of interception by Qatari warplanes, al-Qubaisi added.

The UAE military refuted Qatari allegations in the Qatari protest notes to the United Nations and the Security Council, saying that Qatari intercepted UAE military aircraft over the Arabian Gulf, in addition to intercepting two civilian aircraft which were in regular, scheduled, flights, following well-known routes.

"Abiding by the worldwide laws is vital regarding these things".

"GCAA has already filed a complaint with the International Civil Aviation Organsiation (ICAO) against the Qatari violations as it is the international body concerned with looking into such incidents". "We are now examining the emergency procedures and other related matters".

When you lead off as the first overall pick in ESPN's inaugural mock draft of 2018, people want to hear what you have to say. So keep that comment in mind when you read what Allen said about his mindset if the Browns were to pass on him.

The crisis began June 5 and saw Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE all boycott Qatar.

On January 15, Qatar denied claims by the UAE that its fighter jets intercepted two Emirati passenger planes en route to Bahrain.

Qatar said the UAE allegation followed incidents on December 21 and January 3 in which it accused UAE military aircraft of violating its airspace.

Doha has rejected the allegations and accused the Saudi-led group of attempting to infringe on its sovereignty.
