Qatar Denies Intercepting Iranian Ships

Amid escalating tensions in the strategic Persian Gulf region, Qatar's Interior Ministry has described as baseless reports about the capture of two arms-laden Iranian boats.

"The reports about the seizure in territorial waters of two Iranian boats loaded with weapons are inaccurate," the official Qatar News Agency (QNA) quoted a statement by an official source at the Interior Ministry as saying on Sunday.

The reports came after the Kuwaiti electronic newspaper Al-Aan reported earlier on Sunday that two Iranian boats had been intercepted off the Al-Zubara coast, northeast of Qatar, where the territorial waters of Bahrain and Qatar converge.'
