Yemeni Forces Strike Abu Dhabi Airport with Domestically Made Drone

Sana’a (GPA) – Yemeni forces fighting against the Saudi-led coalition unveiled a new domestically made drone on Thursday by striking the Abu Dhabi international airport.

The new drone — Sammad 3 — is named after the late president of Ansarullah’s (aka the Houthis’) Supreme Political Council, Saleh Ali al-Sammad. Less than a week ago, Ansarullah revealed another new domestically made drone dubbed Sammad 2 by striking a Saudi Aramco oil facility deep beyond the border in Riyadh.

The United Arab Emirates initially denied the attack and instead blamed the damage on a “vehicle incident.” It appears that the Yemeni drone strike disrupted flights but the UAE denied that as well.

Both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates appear to be in denial about Yemen’s growing ability to strike high-value sources of capital far beyond the Yemeni border. Saudi Arabia routinely denies any damage from Yemeni missile strikes.

Several Ansarullah officials over the course of the last year have warned that Yemeni resistance forces would now consider all major sources of capital behind enemy lines to be legitimate military targets. the leader of Yemen’s Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, first made the announcement exactly one year ago to the day when he warned workers to evacuate Aramco.

An Ansarullah spokesman Mohammed Abdul-Salam told Al Jazeera: “We don’t understand the hype when it comes to our attacks. We are in a state of war. We are being attacked every day. Our people are being slaughtered every single day. Our cities, our airports are being targeted by the Saudi-UAE coalition. So, why are they are surprised by us attacking their positions?”

Since last year, Yemen’s revolutionary forces led by Ansarullah have struck multiple Aramco facilities and airports inside Saudi Arabia as well as warships and oil tankers. The strategy appears successful because Saudi Arabia recently halted oil shipments passing through the crucial Bab el-Mandeb Strait. Almost five million barrels of oil pass through this 18-mile chokepoint every day.

The strikes have also possibly helped push the ambiguous value of Aramco down. Mohammed bin Salman hopes to go public with the oil giant soon and analysts expectAramco’s initial public offering (IPO) to be the largest in history: $2 trillion.

This week holds several firsts for Yemen’s resistance movement, Ansarullah. Just days ago, Yemen’s Sana’a-based naval forces launched their first seaborne offensive on the Saudi-occupied al-Mokha port. The attack reportedly killed or injured several Saudi coalition military personnel and destroyed an entire landing dock filled with weapons and ammunition.

The United States provides Saudi Arabia with full military support as well as logistical support for selecting airstrike targets. Saudi Arabia’s airstrikes and military invasion has killed or injured almost 38,000 civilians and destroyed nearly all civilian infrastructure necessary to sustain life.

Farms, government buildings, bustling markets, funerals, weddings, factories, fishing boats, water treatment facilities, and homes are all common targets.
