UAE says Abu Dhabi airport operating normally, denies Houthi attack claim

DUBAI (Reuters) – A United Arab Emirates official denied on Thursday reports that Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthis had targeted the international airport in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi.

“Operations at the airport are business as usual,” the official told Reuters.

The Houthi-run Yemeni TV station Al Masirah earlier said the group had attacked Abu Dhabi International Airport with a drone.
