Houthi rebels have threatened to conduct more attacks against Saudi Arabian and UAE airports and vital installations in response to what they called the Saudi-led coalition’s “brutal aggression” on Yemen.

The threats were made after the Houthis announced on Monday that they had targeted Dubai International Airport with a Samad 3 armed drone. The claim was denied by the authorities in the emirate.

According to military analyst Brigadier General Yahya Al-Houthi, “The operation was a response to the coalition’s brutal aggression against Yemen and the innocent people of Yemen.” He drew attention to the “terrorism” carried out every day against innocent children. “Whether in Saada province or in Dahyan, at least 50 people have been killed and 70 have been wounded in such attacks, as well as the killing of children two days ago in the province of Hodeidah,” he told Iran’s Tasnim news agency.

Al-Houthi explained that armed drones have changed the course of the battle. “We will target vital installations including airports and oil companies or anything that these drones can reach,” he added.
