Yemen’s Houthi Rebels Threaten Strikes Against Dubai And Abu Dhabi

“We announced that we have dozens of targets in the UAE, among them Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and that they can be targeted at any moment,” Houthi military spokesman, Brigadier Yahya Saree, said.

SANAA, Sept 19 (NNN-SABA) – Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis, threatened to attack dozens of targets in the United Arab Emirates, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The UAE is part of the Saudi-led coalition, fighting the Houthis in Yemen, in an intractable five-year conflict that has devastated the country.

“If you want peace and security for your facilities, and towers made of glass, that cannot withstand one drone, then leave Yemen alone,” the rebel spokesman said.

The Houthis have made threats against the UAE in the past, and claimed strikes that were never confirmed by the Emirati authorities.

This week, the militia claimed it carried out devastating attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure that took out half the kingdom’s production — although Washington and Riyadh reject it, saying the assault was beyond their capabilities.

“To the Emirati regime, we say, just one operation will cost you a lot,” Saree said.

“You will regret it, if your leadership decides to issue instructions to its armed forces, to launch any response in the coming days or weeks,” Saree said.– NNN-SABA
