US warns against traveling to UAE over drone threats

The United States Department of State urged Americans on Thursday to avoid traveling to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to COVID-19 concerns, as well as threats of further attacks.

"The Department continues to advise travelers not travel to the United Arab Emirates due to COVID-19, and to reconsider travel due to the threat of missile or drone attacks," the State Department said in a travel advisory.

Last week, three people were killed and another six injured after Yemen's Houthi rebels launched a drone attack on Abu Dhabi. Several days later, the UAE said it intercepted 2 Houthi ballistic missiles targeting the country.
