The UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has announced a second interception by Qatari fighter-planes of a UAE civilian aircraft on a routine flight to Manama, Bahrain.

The GCAA regarded this incident as "a renewed breach of international laws and conventions, and a flagrant and serious threat to the safety of civil aviation," WAM reported Monday. 

The authority is examining legal options available to it via the International Civil Aviation Organisation, ICAO, and other relevant bodies.

Recently, Qatar accused UAE military jets of violating its air space in December and January in two incidents, filing a complaint to the United Nations.
