UAE denounces Houthi booby-trap plane attack on Saudi targets

The UAE has strongly denounced Houthi militias for attempting to target Khamis Mushait in Saudi Arabia with a booby-trapped plane.

The attempt was intercepted by Coalition forces.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) said the UAE affirms that these systematic attacks show the group's blatant disregard for the international community, laws and norms.

The Ministry urged the international community to take an immediate and decisive stance to stop these repeated acts, which threaten security and stability in the Kingdom.

It emphasised that the continued threat of these attacks in recent days is a grave escalation for the region.

The statement reaffirmed the UAE's full solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

"The security of the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is indivisible, and any threat facing the Kingdom is considered a threat to the UAE's security and stability," the Ministry concluded.
