Air defenses intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Iran-backed Houthis over Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, as Israeli President Isaac Herzog was conducting an official visit to the country on Sunday night. The reports of air defenses being activated came out shortly after the Houthis announced that they would be releasing details about a large-scale military operation "in the depths of the UAE."

The Emirati Defense Ministry stated that the attack did not cause any injuries or damage as the remnants of the missile fell in an unpopulated area. Air traffic movement is continuing normal and all flights are operating as usual, the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority said, according to Emirati state news outlet WAM. Shortly after the attack, the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis in Yemen announced that it had destroyed a ballistic missile launchpad in the al-Jawf Governorate in Yemen. Footage of the attack on the launchpad was shared on social media by the Emirati Defense Ministry.
