The spokesman for Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement says the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has no option but to expect more operations from Yemeni army forces and their allied fighters from Popular Committees in case the Saudi-led military aggression and blockade against his impoverished homeland continues.
“The Yemeni air force has carried out the second attack of its kind within a month against Dubai International Airport using a domestically-built and long-endurance Sammad-3 (Invincible-3) unmanned aerial vehicle,” Yemen’s Arabic-language al-Masirah television network cited Mohammed Abdul-Salam as writing on his official Twitter page on Sunday.
The Houthi spokesman added, “Even though Emirati authorities are trying to conceal the attack for the time being and deny air traffic disturbances at their airport, they will be forced to expect more operations should aggression and siege on Yemeni people continue.”
Earlier in the day, Yemeni forces, backed by Popular Committees fighters, launched a drone airstrike against Dubai International Airport.
Yemeni troops and their allies had already targeted the same strategic economic target in the UAE using the same type of home-grown unmanned aerial vehicle in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military aggression against their conflict-ridden homeland.
