Yemen’s Houthi Rebels Claim Launch of Missile at UAE Nuclear Plant

SANA’A – Yemeni Houthi rebels claimed on Sunday to have fired a cruise missile from Yemen toward a nuclear power plant under construction in the United Arab Emirates’ capital, Abu Dhabi, which the UAE denied.

The Houthi-run news agency Saba cited a source from the rebels’ missile force as saying that the projectile was launched toward the Barakah nuclear power plant and reached its target accurately.

However, the UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) said that no attack had taken place, tweeting: “We dismiss the Houthi militias’ allegations that they fired a missile toward the UAE.”

The NCEMA reassured residents and citizens in the UAE that the country is safe, according to the Emirati state-run news agency WAM.

The contradictory reports follow a similar incident on Nov. 4, in which a Houthi missile was fired at the main airport of the Saudi Arabian capital, Riyadh.

The UAE is part of the Saudi-led Arab coalition, which began a military intervention in Yemen in March 2015 to support the internationally-recognized government of Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi against the Houthi rebels.

The Saudi-led bombing campaign has destroyed much of Yemen’s infrastructure and led to a humanitarian catastrophe.

On Saturday, Yemen’s rebel alliance continued to come apart as fighting took place between the Houthis and their onetime allies, the forces loyal to ex-President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

At least 40 people were killed, including civilians, and dozens were wounded in the Yemeni capital Sana’a.
