Saudi National Football Team Arrives Doha-Qatar After Blockade

Saudi national football team arrived in the Qatar capital of Doha to participate in the 24th edition of the Arabian Gulf Cup, which will be held from November 26 to December 8. The Saudi team received an official reception upon arrival at Hamad International Airport before heading to their residence.

The Saudi team flew using the kingdom's national carrier Saudi Arabian airlines directly from the neighbouring kingdom to Qatar, in effect breaking its own two-year air, land and sea blockade on Doha.

The UAE received a similar welcome for its team on Monday early afternoon, just hours after the arrival of the Saudi team on Sunday night.

"Welcome all, via sea and land, Qatar welcomes you," lyrics of an official song for the tournament chanted in the background of videos showcasing the reception of the teams.

 

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain imposed a sea, land and air blockade of Qatar in June 2017 accusing it of having ties radical groups, allegations which Doha has repeatedly denied.
