DUBAI, July 5 (Reuters) - Dubai Airports continues to refuel Iranian passenger flights into its international terminals with jet fuel, the company said on Monday.

"Dubai Airports confirms that Iranian airlines operating in and out of Dubai International continue to be refuelled," the company that operates airports in the emirate of Dubai said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

Earlier, the company managing airports in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, said it too continued to supply Iranian passenger jets with fuel. [ID:nLDE664135]

Iran said on Monday that Germany, Britain, and the United Arab Emirates were refusing to provide fuel to Iranian passenger planes following unilateral U.S. sanctions on the Islamic state, the ISNA news agency reported. [ID:nHAF543917]
