Houthi drone attack on UAE condemned

Popular News

Bangladesh has strongly condemned the Houthi militias’ attack with explosive-laden drones on Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates resulting in explosion of petroleum tankers and fire in the Musaffah ICAD 3 area near Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) causing damage to civil property as well as loss of lives.

This is a repeat terrorist attack following the hijack on a UAE-flagged cargo ship called Rawabi off the coast of Al Hudayah Governorate on January 2, 2022. The latest attack is an escalation of aggression on the part of the Houthi militias adding to further tension in the region.

“Bangladesh feels that the recent drone attack targeting civilian establishments and killing of innocent civilians constitutes an unlawful and cowardly act of terrorism,” said a press release from the Foreign Ministry on Tuesday. “Bangladesh also believes that such insensible and illegal acts are targeting civilians and civilian facilities and are a flagrant violation of international law and norms of civilised behaviour.”

Bangladesh called upon the Houthi militias to refrain from repetition of such unlawful activities and deliberate escalation of tension since such irresponsible activities may aggravate tension in the region.
