The UAE Ministry of Defence (MoD) has denied allegations circulated by some international media about the arrival of US military aircraft at Al Dhafra Air Base to provide support to Israel.

In a statement, the Ministry confirmed these allegations are baseless, as arrivals of US aircraft at the Al Dhafra base have been taking place for several months according to pre-determined timetables within the framework of the military cooperation between the UAE and the US.

They added that the arrival of the aircraft is not related to the developments currently taking place in the region.
