Suspected Iran-backed rebels have reportedly carried out a drone attack at the Abu Dhabi airport in the UAE.
As per reports, three oil tankers have been hit by the drone strike at Abu Dhabi airport. This has led to a fire at a construction site near the airport. According to reports, the attack was carried out by Houthi rebels.
“Initial investigations found parts of a small plane that could possibly be a drone at both sites that could have caused the explosion and the fire,” the police said in a statement on state news agency WAM.
