Footage exposes false claims over Houthi cruise missile ‘targeting Abu Dhabi’

Footage broadcasted by the military media army of the Houthi militia in Yemen showing the launch of a missile they claimed targeted Abu Dhabi actually exposed their falsehoods as the video shown the missile clearly splitting when it rose and fell in Yemeni territories, according to several sources speaking to Al Arabiya.

The UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, NCEMA, has denied claims made by Houthi militias in Yemen of a missile launch towards the UAE’s airspace.
