1 thought on “UAE – still spreading its wings”

  1. Re. “In July and August the Houthis claimed to have attacked Abu Dhabi and Dubai airports using drones as part of their declared asymmetrical warfare campaign (as well as to have attacked targets in Saudi Arabia). A Bellingcat analysis concludes that no such attacks probably took place, but that there is a real threat and the threat is increasing.”
    SecState Pompeo stated “The time is now for the cessation of hostilities, including missile and UAV strikes from Houthi-controlled areas into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.” (https://www.state.gov/secretary/remarks/2018/10/287018.htm) That suggests that either missile or – more likely – UAV attacks onto UAE territory were successful.
