The attacks occurred after the Yemeni military hit regions deep within the United Arab Emirates on Monday with 20 uncrewed aerial vehicles and ten ballistic missiles.

On Monday afternoon, the media reported on the explosion of three oil tankers in the UAE's Muaffah region. Following the explosion, a major fire broke out in the al-Muaffah neighborhood and portions of Abu Dhabi airport.

According to the latest information, three individuals were murdered and six more injured in the Abu Dhabi attacks.

The incident came only days after Mohamed al-Bukhaiti, a member of Yemen's Supreme Political Council, cautioned the UAE not to continue its aggressive maneuvers in the country's south, warning that it would face deep-seated Yemeni retaliation.

Meanwhile, Yemeni officials stated Monday night that 12 civilians were martyred and 11 others were wounded in an attack on the Yemeni capital of Sanaa by Saudi fighters.

Saudi Arabia launched a deadly military campaign against its southern neighbor in March 2015 in coordination with a number of its allies and with the assistance of the US and several Western powers in terms of armaments and logistics.

The objective was to restore the former Riyadh-backed dictatorship to power and eliminate the popular Ansarullah movement, handling state activities in Yemen in the absence of a functional government.

The war has fallen well short of all of its objectives, despite the deaths of tens of thousands of Yemenis and the transformation of Yemen into the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Meanwhile, Yemeni troops have grown stronger in recent months against the Saudi-led invaders, stranding Riyadh and its allies in Yemen.
