Following the footsteps of Saudi Airlines, Emirates and Air Arabia has also suspended their flights to Qatar. However, Qatar airlines rebelling to the move suspended its flights to Saudia Arabia.

Saudia Arabia, Egypt, and the UAE have cut their ties with Qatar. They blame it for supporting terrorism and condemns Qatar for backing ISIS and Al-Qaeda.

Qatar has denied all such claims. Qatar called this act as “unjustified and baseless.” This move is been seen as a split in the Gulf countries.

The Saudi state has also closed its borders to Qatar, cutting all land sea and air contact.

Tension are increasing rapidly between the Gulf countries and also with their neighbour Iran.
