Dubai Int'l Airport attacked by Yemen drones

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 27, IRNA -- After a lapse of one month since Yemenis attacked Abu Dhabi Airport, the country's Army drone units targeted Dubai International Airport.

According to Saba news agency, they attacked there using domestically-built long-range Sammad-3 unmanned aerial vehicle Monday evening.

No further details about the attack have so far been released.

On July 26, Yemeni army forces and Popular Committees fighters targeted Abu Dhabi International Airport in the UAE, using the same type of combat drone.

The attack reportedly disrupted the airport's flights for hours.

The UAE is Saudi Arabia's key ally in its deadly war against Yemen.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating military aggression against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of Yemen's former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, back to power and crushing the country's popular Houthi Ansarullah movement.

The aggression has killed some 15,000 people and injured thousands more.
