Top UN court rules UAE blockade violated Qataris' rights

The International Court of Justice on Monday ruled in discrimination case brought by Doha against the United Arab Emirates.

The Judges at the International Court of Justice in The Hague narrowly found that measures put in place by the United Arab Emirates as part of its boycott against Qatar amount to racial discrimination.

Last month, Qatar filed a case at the ICJ, accusing the UAE of violating international laws by expelling thousands of Qataris - many of whom have family or own property in the UAE - and closing UAE airspace and seaports to Qatar.

Last year, the UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt, imposed a land, air and sea blockade against Qatar and severed ties with it, in one of the worst diplomatic disputes in the Gulf in decades.
