UAE Fighter Strikes Houthi Position
As part of Operation Al Hazm Storm, UAE fighter jets launched air strikes against Houthi-controlled targets in Yemen, later safely heading back to their bases. The strikes targeted air defence systems in Sana'a, Sa'ada and Hudaida, as well as surface-to-surface missiles, command and control centres, and logistics storage and supply centres in Ma'reb. The UAE is participating in operations in Yemen as part of a Saudi-led Arab coalition of over ten countries to protect the Yemeni people and their legitimate government from the violent and extremist Houthi militias.
