Three individuals were killed in Abu Dhabi last week after the Houthi faction launched a series of hostile attacks using cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, and drones targeting an Emirati oil facility near the Al-Dhafra Air Base. The attack saw the first use of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system. Not all rockets were intercepted.
Air defense systems in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi were activated after again detecting incoming hostile projectiles early Monday morning.
