Yemen Rebels Say They Attacked Abu Dhabi Airport With Drones
(Bloomberg) -- Yemeni Shiite Houthis said Thursday they had launched drone strikes at Abu Dhabi’s airport in the United Arab Emirates, Al-Masirah TV, which is controlled by the rebels, reported.
The rebels said they used a new long-distance drone named Sammad 3, after the Houthi leader Saleh al-Sammad, who was killed in an air strike by the Saudi-led Arab coalition several weeks ago.
The Houthis on July 18 said they had attacked a Saudi Aramco refinery in Riyadh using a Sammad 2 drone.
