The attack came a week after Yemen’s Houthi rebels claimed an attack on the Emirati capital that killed three people
The UAE on Monday, January 24, 2022, intercepted and destroyed two ballistic missiles that the Houthi terror group fired towards its capital Abu Dhabi, the Ministry of Defence said, days after two Indians and a Pakistani were killed in a rare drone and missile attack claimed by the Yemeni rebels.
