Raisi meets head of Sanaa's negotiation delegation
The head of the Sanaa negotiation delegation meets Iran's president and comments on the explosion near Abu Dhabi's airport.
The head of the Sanaa negotiation delegation, Mohammed Abdulsalam, met Monday with the Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in Iran's capital, Tehran.
Referring to the recent military operation in the UAE's capital, Abu Dhabi, Abdulsalam pointed out that "a small state serving Washington and 'Tel Aviv' has recently done the opposite of what it claims," as it rigorously works against the interests of Arab and Muslim countries and was responded to after it did not refrain from attacking Yemen.
دويلة صغيرة في المنطقة تستميت في خدمة أمريكا وإسرائيل، كانت قد زعمت أنها نأت بنفسها عن اليمن لكنها انكشفت في الآونة الأخيرة خلاف ما زعمت، وعلى إثر ذلك فهي بين أن تسارع لكف يدها عن العبث في اليمن أو جاءها بقوة الله ما يقطع يدها ويد غيرها.— محمد عبدالسلام (@abdusalamsalah) January 17, 2022
A few days ago, Abdulsalam met Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in Oman and discussed the military escalation against Yemen.
During his last meeting with Abdulsalam in August 2021, Raisi stressed that no foreign side has the right to decide on Yemen's fate, noting that it has become clear to the whole world, including the aggressors, who the real victors are.
Explosion near Abu Dhabi's airport
Earlier, the Emirates News Agency reported on Monday that a fire broke out in the morning, which led to the explosion of three petroleum tankers in ICAD 3, Mussafah, near ADNOC's storage tanks, in addition to a minor fire near the new construction site of the Abu Dhabi International Airport.
According to the police, initial investigations suggest that "the cause of the fires are small flying objects, possibly drones, that have targeted the two areas." They added that "competent authorities have been dispatched," and an investigation is ongoing.
The spokesman for the Yemeni forces General Yahya Saree tweeted that an important statement will be published to announce a military operation in the UAE in the coming hours.
Reliable Yemeni sources said the military operation in the heart of the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi is still ongoing, explaining that fires are raging.
Private sources revealed to Al Mayadeen that 20 drones and 10 Yemeni ballistic missiles had hit sensitive targets in the UAE.
The sources also added that an Emirati military plane was attacked this morning at Ataq Airport in Shabwa, southeast of Yemen, leading to the disruption of its flight.
The Minister of Information in Sanaa, Daif Allah Al-Shami, said the disciplinary message that was intended to reach the Emirates had been conveyed.
