The United States is to deploy a missile destroyer and fighter jet to help protect the UAE from the enemy. Washington made the decision after the country was hit by a missile attack by Yemeni rebels. This was stated in a statement issued by the United States on Wednesday (February 2nd). News from AFP.
The U.S. embassy in the United Arab Emirates said the warships and warplanes were being deployed to “assist the UAE in countering the ongoing threat” from Yemeni rebels following a phone conversation between Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Houthi rebels attacked the United Arab Emirates last month. Three people were killed in the attack. Six others were injured.
