Houthis fire third rocket

The attack did not result in any losses, as the remnants of the ballistic missile fell outside the populated areas.

UAE’s Ministry of Defense on a rocket attack by Houthi rebels – the third in recent weeks.
  • The UAE destroyed the rocket launching site – watch the video here.
  • The attack occurred early Monday, while Israel's president was visiting the UAE. One of the goals of the visit was to show regional support for the UAE and their security.
  • Why It Matters: The UAE is allied with Saudi Arabia, which supports the opposing side to the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen's civil war. The ongoing rocket attacks are an expansion of this fighting and raise questions about a heightened regional conflict.
