Commentary by Russian military journalist Boris Rozhin:

[ColonelCassad] The Houthis, with the help of UAVs, covered the new terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport, and also hit oil storage facilities.

The Houthis have already confirmed the attack and promised more details during the day. Abu Dhabi police report fires at airport following hits. A number of publications report at least two strong explosions at the airport. There are unconfirmed reports of three fuel trucks destroyed.

The UAE has not attacked for a long time - the Houthis massively launched missiles and drones in the direction of Saudi Arabia. Now the emirates have arrived. Al Mayadeen claims that 20 kamikaze UAVs and 10 ballistic missiles were allegedly launched into Abu Dhabi. How many could shoot down the Abu Dhabi air defense unit is not reported. The Saudis today reported on 3 kamikaze UAVs shot down over the southern provinces of Saudi Arabia.

In general, we are waiting for the details of the operation.
In any case, regardless of the number of drones and missiles fired, as well as the damage caused, the Houthis demonstrate that they can easily reach the capital of the UAE

As of Monday, the UAE is no longer a safe country
[ColonelCassad] Following the successful strike on Abu Dhabi, the Houthi leader said that from today, all countries and companies investing in the UAE should not consider the UAE as a safe country. That is, he transparently hinted that the campaign of ballistic missile strikes and kamikaze UAVs against the UAE would become as systematic as against Saudi Arabia.

Previously, the Houthis have already linked the issue of stopping strikes on Saudi Arabia (and now on the UAE) with the demands to stop air strikes on the cities of Yemen, saying that as long as Yemen is being bombed, we will be bombing the territory of the intervention countries.

I wonder where the drones were actually launched from?

In the case of the UAE, the Houthis said that they had previously stated that they were withdrawing troops from Yemen and were going to leave, but did not leave and continued to participate in aggression against the Yemeni people, along with other interventionists, occupying the sovereign territory of Yemen. Therefore, last week the Houthis warned that there would be consequences. And today, the consequences for the duplicitous policy of the UAE have arrived.

According to preliminary data, 2 Indian citizens were killed on the territory of the Abu Dhabi airport, one Pakistani + 6 more people were injured.

A strong fire continues at the Abu Dhabi airport. Burnt fuel trucks and a military transport aircraft are also reported. Saudi Arabia called the Houthis strike a "cowardly terrorist attack." Of course, when the Saudis bombed Sanaa several times last week, including the Sanaa airport, it was not considered a terrorist attack.
