Two ballistic missiles fired from Yemen were intercepted and destroyed by the United Arab Emirates. The country’s defence ministry stated that the ballistic missile attack came after last week’s deadly attack on the country.

For the last 6 years, the Houthi rebels have been fighting a Saudi-led coalition led Yemen. The coalition consists of various key players, including UAE. The Houthis have been said to carry out cross-border missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia for a long time. They have, however, extended to include the United Arab Emirates as a new target.

The Ministry further added that remnants of the intercepted ballistic missiles fell in the separate areas of Abu Dhabi (the capital of UAE). Furthermore, the ministry is taking further steps to prevent such attacks in the future. A newspaper in UAE noted that residents in the city noticed bright flashes in the sky around 4:30 AM.

The ballistic missile attack on Monday was the UAE’s second since a strike last week that killed three people at a gasoline depot in Abu Dhabi (including two Indians). The attack on the fuel depot caused a fire near Abu Dhabi International Airport.

UAE has drastically reduced its presence in Yemen since 2019 and the Yemeni civil war is currently at a stalemate. The UAE-backed forces in Yemen, on the other hand, have been attacking the Houthis’ main energy-producing provinces. Moreover, the Yemeni civil war has sparked an ongoing massive humanitarian crisis.
