Emirates Will STOP All Its Flights To Tunisia From Today

The Tunisian transport ministry said in a statement earlier that Emirates flights would be suspended until the UAE airline found a way to operate according to global law and treaties.

"The UAE authorities informed the Tunisian side about the reports and information on [terrorists'] plans to attack the UAE and stage a terror attack involving Tunisian women during the Christmas celebrations", a high-ranking source in the Tunisian government has confirmed Sputnik on Monday.

Tunisian authorities banned Emirates Airlines from landing in Tunis in retaliation against a decision by UAE authorities denying all female Tunisian nationals entry into the country under a "temporary" travel restriction on Friday, December 22.

"In the UAE, we are proud of empowering women, we appreciate Tunisian women, and respect them".

The announcement came two days after Tunisian government officials said the UAE had banned Tunisian woman from flying to or transiting through its territory.

"We contacted our Tunisian brothers about security information that necessitated taking specific procedures", Emirati Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said on Twitter on Sunday.

"We should avoid misleading attempts".

Tunisia has suspended all Emirates Airlines flights to and from the North African country.

According to the email, the only exceptions to this directive were females who hold Tunisian diplomatic passports or those with valid UAE residential visas.

The move comes amid widespread anger in Tunisia, with rights groups condemning "racist and discriminatory" measures.

Tunisia has been trying to improve relations with the UAE that were damaged by its 2011 revolution.
