Prime Minister Naftali Bennett condemns the Houthi attack on Abu Dhabi yesterday, in a letter he sent to Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

“I strongly condemn the terrorist attacks in Abu Dhabi carried out by the Iranian-backed Houthis and send condolences to the families of the innocent victims,” Bennett says. “Israel stands with the UAE. I stand with Mohammed bin Zayed. The world should stand against terror.”

In the letter, Bennett offers Israel’s “security and intelligence support” to protect against future attacks, and said he had “ordered the Israeli security establishment to provide their counterparts in the UAE with any assistance.”

A drone attack claimed by Yemen’s Houthi rebels targeting a key oil facility in Abu Dhabi killed three people yesterday and sparked a fire at Abu Dhabi’s international airport.
