Brigadier General Yahya Saree

Spokesman of Yemen's Armed Forces said on Monday that the country's military struck areas inside the United Arab Emirates after a warning a few days ago as Abu Dhabi's aggression continues.

Iran PressMiddle East: "In a strategic operation, we targeted deep inside the UAE territory," said Brigadier General Yahya Saree after a blast was reported in Abu Dhabi.

The remarks came a few minutes ago when the media reported the explosion of three oil tankers in the Muṣaffah district in the UAE. The blast was followed by a large fire in the al-Muṣaffah area and parts of Abu Dhabi airport.

Al-Muṣaffah is an industrial area located southwest of the UAE city of Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi police confirmed the news of the explosion in the area, saying: "There have been no reports of possible damages in the fire in Muṣaffah."

The Yemeni military conducts regular retaliatory attacks against targets in Saudi Arabia over its devastating war on Yemen. But, the attack against the UAE, which is fighting alongside Saudi Arabia, has been rare.
