The US Embassy in the United Arab Emirates has issued a warning to Americans in the country about reports of a possible missile or drone attack in Abu Dhabi.
“There are reports of a possible missile or drone attack over Abu Dhabi, UAE today, February 9, 2022,” the embassy said. “The Embassy advises U. S. citizens to immediately follow the security actions listed below and to remain vigilant in case of additional future attacks. ”
US media reported that the alarm may have been caused by a gas tank that exploded in a fire in downtown Abu Dhabi. The Houthis have not immediately claimed any responsibility for an attack in the UAE, the report added.
