Attack on Abu Dhabi proof that "Eilat" is not immune: Israeli media
Israeli media is reflecting the Israeli security concerns as Yemen has proven that it can go beyond its borders and attack its enemies and those who pose a threat to them.
Israeli media, days after the attack that targeted Abu Dhabi, expresses its fears that the Israeli interior is not immune to similar attacks.
Haaretz noted that the attack "fundamentally underlines the boldness and determination of the Islamic Republic," in a nod to the Sanaa Government forces, which they claim is backed by Iran.
"The message is not only for the United States and Israel in light of the resumption of the nuclear talks; it is also for the Gulf countries after the UAE resumed its intervention in Yemen," Haaretz asserted.
According to Haaretz's claims, the attack could also reflect the "growing frustration" of the Sanaa government forces after failing to liberate Marib for the past two years, although the latter are making strides in terms of advances on Marib.
The newspaper recalled how the Sanaa government forces had threatened to bomb "Israel" noting that the attack carried out on Abu Dhabi was from a distance of 1200 km, and the distance between the launch site and "Eilat" is only 1500 km.
The Israeli occupation had been gravely concerned by the Yemeni threats, with the security apparatuses staying on high alert after they were made. Former occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went as far as declaring Yemen "another threat for Israel."
Reportedly, political and security sources in the Israeli interior speculate that the reason behind the attack is the UAE becoming involved in the war on Yemen again as part of its membership in the Saudi-led coalition of aggression on Yemen.
Israeli experts closely watching the ongoing war on Yemen see that the Sanaa government forces do not wait for Iran's approval to carry out any operation, which negates their accusations of any Iranian funding or backing.
Israeli media did not refrain from praising the Yemeni capabilities, as Haaretz said, "The individual design and the ability to simultaneously launch missiles and drones on several targets reflect courage and high levels of sophistication."
Haaretz claimed that the regions under their control allow them to pose a threat to Israeli maritime navigation Eilat in the Arabian Sea," adding that the occupation attributes high importance to navigation in the south, "Therefore the airforce and the navy have been working in the Yemeni arena for decades, and according to foreign reports, they are still doing so today."
Security officials in "Israel" had expressed their concern about the Yemeni drone's response that targeted the depth of the UAE, in response to its participation in the Saudi-led war on Yemen.
