The Yemeni army’s missile brigade has reportedly attacked Abi Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, on Wednesday noon.

The Yemeni TV channel Al Masirah quoted a Yemeni military official as saying that the Army has targeted Abu Dhabi using ballistic missiles.

The official declared that the missile has hit the target with a high precision.

Emirati officials have yet to comment on the attack.

The UAE is a member of a Saudi-led coalition which has been waging an air campaign against Yemen since March 2015.

The war was launched in an attempt to eliminate the Houthi Ansarullah movement and reinstall former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who resigned in 2014 and fled to Riyadh before returning to Aden.

The Saudi-led war, which has been accompanied by a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, has so far killed over 12,000 people in the impoverished state, left 70 percent of the country’s 27 million population in desperate need of humanitarian aid, and caused the worst cholera outbreak in the world there.
