UAE Israeli front in Gulf: Israeli media
Israeli media reveals that mobilizing air defense systems in the UAE would be a foundation to a regional air defense system in the Gulf that would give "Israel" an early warning.
The UAE is a front for "Israel" in the Gulf, Israeli media said Monday.
"If detection and warning systems are deployed in the UAE, they will be a cornerstone for a regional air defense system," Israeli media added.
Reportedly, if these systems were to be deployed in the UAE, they would warn the occupation ahead of time of any imminent attack. This comes in light of Israeli fears that they could be Sanaa's next target as the Yemeni army and popular committees' capabilities prove to be far more developed than they were through to be.
Alon Ben-David, a military commentator in Israeli Channel 13, "This definitely worries Israel, as everything that has been going on in the UAE lately is only a trailer for what is being prepared for Israel."
Ben-David asserted his belief that Ansar Allah planned on targeting Israeli occupation President Isaac Herzog during his visit to the UAE, noting that the intercepted missile was not a precision missile, but "I suppose that the timing of his visit was not out of sight, and they understood the symbolism of launching a missile at Abu Dhabi on the day that the Israeli president is there."
Israeli media said the Israeli occupation fears that Sanaa's operations against the UAE are live-fire drills for attacks on "Israel" later.
Channel 13's Arab affairs correspondent said "Tel Aviv" has long been closely watching the "Iranian axis and the threats from Yemen, and the biggest fear is that Ansar Allah has been conducting live munition drills by launching UAVs and ballistic missiles toward the UAE, and maybe later they will try to launch them toward Eilat or other places."
The same channel reported that launching missiles toward Abu Dhabi during Herzog's visit was another reminder, and "Israel must prepare."
Gantz provides aid to the UAE
Israeli Security Minister Benny Gantz said, "We are ready to confront all of these possibilities, and we will thwart every anti-Israeli activity if we have to," expressing his hopes by providing aid to the UAE. "If they wanted for it and demanded it, it is their decision."
"Israel has a huge opportunity if it is able to sell the UAE detection and warning systems," Gantz said, clarifying that if such systems were deployed in the Gulf state, they would detect any attack from the South (Yemen) and the East (Iran), "And this would be a cornerstone for a regional air defense system."
He also asserted that the UAE and Saudi Arabia needed such systems, "And they have thought of the advantage Israel would have."
"If a drone takes off from Iran, Israel would be notified six hours before [it reaches occupied Palestine] thanks to the radars on the UAE's Gulf coast," Gantz claimed.
Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesperson Brigadier General Yahya Saree announced Monday that Yemen's armed forces executed Operation Yemen Hurricane III, which targeted the UAE.
Saree said that a number of important targets were struck in Abu Dhabi using Zulfiqar ballistic missile, and other key targets were also struck in Abu Dhabi using Samad-3 drones.
