UAE thwarts latest Houthi ballistic missile attack

However, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority said that there is no change in the scheduled flights of the region after the ballistic missile by the terror group Houthi militia.

On Monday, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has claimed that it had obstructed a ballistic missile launched by Yemen’s Houthi militia. The statement was released amid Israeli President Isaac Herzog’s first-ever visit to the Middle East.

According to the UAE Ministry of Defence, reports by the WAM news agency, no causalities or injury was reported as the missile fell outside the populated area. The ministry further affirmed that the nation is ready to deal with the threats and would take all necessary measures to safeguard UAE and its residents from such attacks.


The UAE air force has destroyed the missile launch site in Yemen’s Al-Jawf governorate on the same day. This attack was carried in a coalition to restore legitimacy in Yemen.

However, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority said that there is no change in the scheduled flights of the region after the ballistic missile by the terror group Houthi militia. The authority further said that all flight operations have been running as usual.

This Houthi attack was reported just a few hours after Israeli President Herzog visited Abu Dhabi.

The Houthi attack came hours after Israel’s President Herzog arrived in Abu Dhabi to seek stronger regional ties. Reportedly, President and Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan discussed about the bilateral relations in Abu Dhabi.

Despite the Houthi attack, the Israeli President continued his UAE visit, and as per his schedule, he will visit Dubai’s Expo 2020 on Monday.


This missile attack has happened just after Yehia Sarei, one of the Houthi military spokesmen, took Twitter to show off that the terror group would soon disclose details about new military operations.

Earlier, Houthi attacked Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. fuel depot through a drone-and-missile on January 17; during this, three were killed and around six were severely injured.
