According to Navid Shahed website, “The large-scale military operation hit qualitative and important targets in Abu Dhabi with a number of Zulfiqar ballistic missiles, and sensitive targets in Dubai with a number of Sammad-3 drones," the Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sare’e said in a statement.
The Armed Forces reiterated that "the Emirati enemy state will remain unsafe as long as Abu Dhabi and Dubai Rulers, Israeli agents continue to launch aggression against our people and our country."
The Armed Forces also renewed its warning to citizens, residents and companies to stay away from vital facilities, as they are vulnerable to targeting during the coming period.
The statement stressed that the Armed Forces will not "stand idly by while Yemenis are suffering from the Saudi-UAE suffocating siege and war crimes."
"We will continue to legitimately defend dear Yemen until the aggression stops and the siege is lifted," Sare’e concluded.
The US-Saudi-Emirati aggression has lately ramped up its airstrikes against various regions across Yemen.
The Ministry of Public Health indicated that more than 150 civilians were killed and 350 others were wounded as a result of the escalation of the recent and ongoing aggression during January, including the massacre of a prison center in Sa’adah, which killed 91 prisoners.
On Januray 21, Yahya Sare'e warned in a statement posted on his Twitter page Foreign companies in the Emirates to leave, saying “In the aftermath of the crimes committed by the US-Saudi-Emirati aggression against Yemeni people, we advise foreign companies in the Emirates to leave because they have invested in an unsafe country."
He added, “The UAE would grow more insecure as long as its rulers continue their military aggression against Yemen.”
Yemeni forces carried out retaliatory airstrikes against strategic facilities deep inside the UAE on January 17, using domestically-manufactured combat drones and ballistic missiles.
The airstrikes targeted the Dubai and Abu Dhabi airports, the Musaffah oil refinery in Abu Dhabi, and a number of important and sensitive Emirati sites and facilities.
In response to the continued escalation of aggression after the first hurricane and the perpetration of more massacres against the Yemeni people, which claimed hundreds of deaths and wounded within three days, the Yemeni Armed Forces carried out the Operation Yemen Hurricane II onJanuary 24.
The operation targeted the Al Dhafra military base and other sensitive targets in Abu Dhabi and Dubai with a large number of Zulfiqar ballistic missiles. It also targeted vital targets in Dubai with a large number of drones, while the Al Sharurah, Jizan and Asir areas in the Saudi depth were targeted with ballistic missiles and drones.
Saudi Arabia launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, leading a military campaign consisting of its regional allies, including the UAE.
The kingdom estimated at the beginning of the war that it would come out victorious within just a few weeks. However, the war continued for seven years, leaving hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead and displacing millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases there.
