Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthis on Monday claimed responsibility for a drone attack in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that sparked an explosion in three oil tankers and a fire near Abu Dhabi international airport, leaving at least three people killed and six others wounded.
Hours ago, a 'possible' drone strike sparked an explosion that struck three oil tankers in Abu Dhabi and another fire at an extension of Abu Dhabi International Airport.
