ABU DHABI, 2nd January, 2022 – The UAE has expressed its strong denunciation and condemnation of the attempts by the terrorist Houthi militia to target the southern region of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with three drones carrying bombs, which were intercepted by Coalition forces.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC), the UAE considered this to be a dangerous escalation and cowardly act that threatens the security, safety, and lives of civilians and called for taking all necessary measures to protect civilians from Houthi threats.
