    DUBAI (Sputnik) - The United Arab Emirates has lodged an official complaint against Qatar with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) over Qatari jets intercepting Emirati civilians aircraft, the Gulf News outlet reported on Monday.

    Last week, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) said that two Qatari jets on Monday came dangerously close to two civilian aircraft from the UAE.

    The United Arab Emirates considers the actions of Qatar aggressive and condemns them, the Gulf News outlet reported, citing Saif Mohammad Suwaidi, the head of the GCAA.
