UK stands with UAE after fatal Houthi attack: Foreign secretary

Following a deadly attack by Yemen’s Houthi militia last week, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said on Friday that the UK stands “with our Emirati friends.”
Speaking during a phone call with her UAE counterpart, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Truss strongly condemned the attack that killed three people and wounded seven others.
The Iran-backed Houthis launched a number of ballistic missiles and explosive-laden drones toward Abu Dhabi on Jan. 17 targeting fuel facilities of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and the airport. The militia renewed its attack on the capital on Monday and launched two ballistic missiles that were intercepted by the UAE with US support.
