ADNOC offers jobs, education funding to families of victims killed in Abu Dhabi Houthi attack

The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) would provide job possibilities to family members of the two Indian employees killed in the Houthi attack on the company’s Mussafah plant.

Sunjay Sudhir, the Indian Ambassador to the UAE, addressed at a media conference at the Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, according to state news agency WAM.

“India is extremely thankful to the UAE leadership and ADNOC for their sympathy and assistance to the families of the two Indians deceased and [other] two Indians injured in the event,” Sudhir added.

Sudhir stated that ADNOC will provide education money to the victims’ children so that they may pursue their selected career options.

During his press conference, he stated that ADNOC had paid for all repatriation and travel expenses for family members who transferred the remains of the dead, Hardev Singh and Hardeep Singh.

In addition, the national oil firm has hastened the disbursement of service benefits and salary compensation to the victims’ relatives.

The Houthi militia attacked Abu Dhabi on January 17th, killing three persons and injuring six more.

In the Houthi terrorist incident in Abu Dhabi on January 17, two Indian civilians and one Pakistani civilian were murdered, while six additional civilians were injured.

The media event comes after the UAE’s Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, expressed condolences to the victims’ families and “assured them that the UAE will continue to give its entire assistance,” according to an ADNOC tweet.

Al Jaber also paid visits to those injured in the assaults, wishing them a swift recovery.
