After the Houthi attack on Abu Dhabi, an Israeli company receives an urgent request from the UAE to expand its defense arsenal

The head of the Israeli company Skylock Defense Systems stated that the UAE requested the company’s urgent support after the Houthi attack that targeted Abu Dhabi last Monday.

The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth quoted sources in Tel Aviv as saying that the UAE is looking to expand its arsenal of Israeli defense systems, and that this decision came after the recent attack on Abu Dhabi.

Last Monday, the Houthi group announced that it had carried out a military operation that it described as qualitative in the depth of the UAE, and confirmed the targeting of vital facilities in Abu Dhabi and Dubai by drones and ballistic and winged missiles, which resulted in the killing of 3 workers of Indian and Pakistani nationalities.

Following the attack, the Emirates News Agency reported that Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed received a phone call from Israeli President Isaac Herzog, in which he condemned the Houthi attacks.

The agency added that Herzog affirmed Israel’s full support for the UAE in everything it is doing to defend its security and sovereignty, as he put it.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett had expressed his strong condemnation of the attack on Abu Dhabi, and said that the Houthis carried it out “at the direction of the Iranians.”

For its part, the United Arab Emirates called last Tuesday for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on the attacks launched by the Houthis on Abu Dhabi, which prompted a response from the Saudi-led military coalition in Sanaa.

The UAE also called on the United States of America to re-list the Houthis on the list of terrorism, but US President Joe Biden said that the Emirati request is under study.
