UAE forces intercept Iranian drone carrying explosives intended for Yemen targets


DUBAI: The UAE armed forces’ anti-aircraft defense unit has intercepted an Iranian Qassef-1 drone loaded with explosives aimed at Yemeni forces, state news agency WAM reported.

The Saudi-led Arab coalition emphasized the need to address the capabilities of Iran, which it said posed a direct threat “not only to the Yemeni forces and people, but to the freedom of maritime navigation in the Red Sea.”

Yemen’s government previously accused the Iranian regime of supplying the Houthi militia with drones.

At the time, the government said the aircraft were made in Iran as Yemen did not possess the capability to build them.
