Sana'a (Debriefer) - The Houthi group has decided to halt attacks targeting the United Arab Emirates, member of the Houthi Supreme Political Council tweeted on Saturday, after the key partner of Saudi Arabia in the Arab coalition declared withdrawal from Yemen.
The group will also stop shelling Saudi lands if the Kingdom decides to withdraw from the war-torn country, Mohamed Ali al-Houthi added.
While it repeatedly claimed to have missiles and drones that can reach Emirati lands and beyond, the Iranian-backed group has never targeted the Gulf state.
In June 2019, the UAE declared troop withdrawal from Yemen, though officials in the Yemeni UN-recognized government say Abu Dhabi is still present in military bases in Balhaf, Rayan airport, Socotra and other Yemeni islands.
In addition, the UAE has indirect presence in Yemeni through militias backed and funded by Abu Dhabi.
Last week, the Emirati-backed Southern Transitional Council stirred its supporters to stage a rally, storming into the presidential palace in Aden, the government's seat, at time the national army resumed fighting at many fronts.
