Riyadh fighter jet downs Qatar passenger plane in Saudi TV animation


‘As the diplomatic feud between Doha and its Arab neighbors continues, Saudi Arabia’s Al Arabiya TV has published a video showing a Saudi fighter jet downing a Qatari passenger plane, saying it’s an “option” for violating Riyadh’s airspace.

The animated video makes clear that Saudi Arabia would have the right to deal with a “violating plane” in “any way it wishes” under international law.

However, it goes on to show a deadly example in which the plane is shot down by a Saudi military plane with a missile.’
