“Several attacks — a combination of cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, and drones — targeted civilian sites” in the UAE, Al Otaiba said.

ABU DHABI — Houthis used cruise missiles, ballistic missiles and drones in attack on Abu Dhabi, the UAE  ambassador to the United States said on Wednesday, reports Associated Press.

The remarks by Ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba marked an official acknowledgement that missiles — and not just drones — were used in Monday’s attack, claimed by the Iran-backed Houthis.

“Several attacks — a combination of cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, and drones — targeted civilian sites” in the UAE, Al Otaiba said.

“Several were intercepted, a few of them didn’t and three innocent civilians unfortunately lost their lives,” he added in remarks at a virtual event hosted by the Jewish Institute for National Security of America.
