UAE denies claim of Yemen missile attack against its plant

Monday, December 04, 2017

Dubai: The United Arab Emirates today denied a claim by Yemen's Shiite rebels that a rebel missile had been fired toward the country's under-construction nuclear plant.

The rebels, known as Houthis, earlier in the day claimed they had launched a missile toward the plant in Abu Dhabi in the first such strike toward the country. "The National Emergency and Crisis and Disasters Management Authority denies the claim that the Houthis fired a missile toward the country," the UAE's state-run WAM news agency said. "The UAE possesses an air defence system capable of dealing with any threat of any type or kind."

The National, a state-aligned newspaper in Abu Dhabi,  reported that Barakah's operations were "unaffected, while sources on the ground confirmed there were no signs of an attack to the structure." The newspaper did not elaborate.

The UAE is a major US ally that hosts some 5,000 American troops and is the US Navy's busiest foreign port of call. The US military's Central Command, which oversees its Mideast operations, as well as the Pentagon, had no immediate comment.
