Prime Minister Naftali Bennett speaks with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan following the deadly attack on the UAE by Iran-backed rebels in Yemen.

According to Bennett’s office, the prime minister expressed condolences over the missile and drone attack launched by the Houthis, which killed three people.

“The prime minister also expressed the State of Israel’s support for the United Arab Emirates in this complicated time,” a statement from the premier’s office says, adding that the two agreed to stay in touch.

The UAE’s official WAM news agency also carries a statement about the call.

“The Israeli Prime Minister affirmed his country’s support for all that the UAE is doing to defend its security against these attacks, stressing the need to confront terrorist forces that threaten stability and peace in the region,” the WAM reports says.
