Kuwait deplores UAE fuel truck blast claimed by Yemen’s Houthis

Kuwait on Monday “strongly condemned” a fuel truck explosion in UAE’s capital Abu Dhabi believed to be triggered by a cross-border drone in an attack claimed by Yemen’s Houthi group, slamming the incident as an “act of cowardice.” The attack, which left three people dead and at least six others wounded, is a “deliberate attempt” by the Houthis to violate the basic principles of international laws and conventions, said a foreign ministry statement.

Kuwait “firmly stands alongside” the UAE and backs all measures the Gulf Arab state takes to protect its security and stability, the statement highlighted. UAE’s state run news agency WAM said the explosion in the industrial Musaffah area, where a number of storage facilities are located, could have been started by a drone, citing initial investigations.
