DOHA, Dec 7 : Qatar announced Thursday a deal to buy 12 French-built Rafale fighter jets, as it faces a boycott by neighbouring Gulf states in the region's worst political crisis in years.
The 1.1-billion-euro ($1.3-billion) order, announced during an official visit by French President Emmanuel Macron, allows for an option to buy a further 36 jets.
It comes on top of a 2015 agreement on the purchase of 24 Dassault Aviation-built Rafale warplanes.    -AFP
