The defense ministry in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said it intercepted and destroyed three hostile drones that penetrated the gulf country's airspace over unpopulated areas on the early morning of Wednesday. Righteous Promise Brigades, an Iraqi-based militant group, took responsibility for the attack on the UAE. UAE's defense ministry added that it is taking "all necessary measures to protect the state and its territory." The Gulf state has been the target of several ballistic missiles and drone attacks over the past month, all claimed by the Houthis, a Yemeni rebel group backed by Iran.

On Sunday night, during Israeli President Isaac Herzog's official visit, Emirati air defenses intercepted a ballistic missile launched by the Iran-backed Houthis over Abu Dhabi. In response, the Saudi-led coalition launched a series of intense airstrikes on Sana’a, Yemen’s capital, early on Monday morning.
