The UAE strongly condemned the targeting by the terrorist Houthi militias of Qena commercial port in Shabwa, Yemen, with booby-trapped drones.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the UAE affirmed that this attack is a dangerous escalation and blatant defiance to the international community and efforts made to end the Yemeni crisis.
The Ministry stated that the attack constitutes a flagrant violation of international laws and norms which requires a deterrent response to all that threatens the security, safety, and lives of civilians, as well as Yemeni economic interests.
The Ministry urged the international community to unite efforts and take a decisive stance to stop the crimes committed by the terrorist Houthi militias in order to pave the way for a comprehensive ceasefire in Yemen, and a return to a political process that leads to peace, security, and stability in the country.
