WAM

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince offered his condolences to the families of the Emirati martyrs who died over the weekend while performing their national duty.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, met with the relatives of Zayed Mosalam Suhail Al Amri and Saleh Hassan Saleh bin Amro in the UAE capital.

On Saturday the UAE Armed Forces said six Emirati servicemen were killed in a vehicle collision while performing their national duty during operations in the field.

"We are proud of our martyrs who offer their very souls in defence of their nation's security and stability," said Sheikh Mohamed.

"The six martyrs join the sublime ranks of their brothers whose heroism will remain an indelible source of inspiration for generations to come, serving as a role model for loyalty and belonging to their nation, and a steadfast protective shield and fortified bulwark for this honourable country's national dignity."
