UAE envoy: Yemen's Houthis used missiles in Abu Dhabi attack
Yemen's Houthi rebels used cruise and ballistic missiles, in addition to drones, in an attack on Abu Dhabi this week that killed three people and set off fires at a fuel depot and an international airport, the Emirati ambassador to the United States said Wednesday.
The remarks by Ambassador Yousef Al-Otaiba marked an official acknowledgement that missiles — and not just drones — were used in Monday's attack, claimed by the Iran-backed Houthis.
"Several attacks — a combination of cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, and drones — targeted civilian sites" in the United Arab Emirates, Al-Otaiba said.
"Several were intercepted, a few of them didn’t and three innocent civilians unfortunately lost their lives,"
