Saudi says Qatar blocks planes from transporting pilgrims

However, the first flight has not been able to take off from Saudi Arabia because it had not yet received landing permission in Doha, said Saleh al-Jasser, the general director of the airline, according to Saudi state news agency SPA.

Saudi Arabian king, HH King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques announced that Qatari pilgrims would not be banned from visiting Saudi, but would be required to travel to Jeddah or Madinah by plane to visit.

Meanwhile, he also allowed Qatari pilgrims to enter the Kingdom via Salwa border post so as to perform their Hajj ritual as well as allowed all Qatari citizens, who wish to enter the Kingdom to perform Hajj without e-permits. Qatar continues to deny the allegation.

Saudi Arabia and three other Arab countries cut diplomatic and transport links with Qatar and barred its planes from their airspace in early June, accusing it of backing extremists.

Saudi state media broke the news overnight.

He said that since the beginning of transportation of pilgrims to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on July 30, a significant progress had been achieved by the commission in many areas.

The Coordinator in charge of Medina Operation and Secretary of NAHCON, Dr Bello Tambuwal, made this known while briefing journalists on Saturday in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

The decision came after Prince Mohammed met with Qatari royal family member Sheikh Abdullah Al Thani late Wednesday at a palace in Jiddah. This branch of the Qatari family was ousted from the country's throne in 1972.

Qatar's foreign minister said his country welcomed the decision to facilitate the hajj for Qataris, however the moves do not appear to have been coordinated with Qatar's government.

Nonneman added that Sheikh Abdullah is no way any kind of envoy of Qatar.

Saudi reports note that Qatari pilgrims began arriving in Saudi Arabia on Thursday following the opening of the border crossing.

Qatar's Minister of Foreign Affairs HE Sheikh Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said that the siege countries have not yet submitted, after 73 days of the blockade, any evidence supporting their accusations against Qatar's supporting terrorism.
