    Emirates News Agency: Explosion in 3 tankers transporting petroleum fuels in Mussafah area in Abu Dhabi

    The blasts were heard in the Al-Masfa Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE. The official UAE news agency reported in a breaking news that three fuel tankers had caught fire in this industrial area.

    The official UAE news agency, quoting police sources, confirmed that several drones dropped bombs on fuel tanks in Abu Dhabi Industrial Zone, as well as the city's international airport.

    According to a spokesman for the Yemeni Armed Forces, there appears to have been more than one attack on Emirati positions, and some other parts of the country have also been targeted
    by Yemeni Army drones.

    Yemeni side said that they had given the last warnings to the Emirati authorities through the Omani side, calling on the country to end the war against the Yemeni people.

    These warnings do not seem to have been taken seriously by the Abu Dhabi . The Yemeni authorities have been very patient in their treatment of the Emirati side, and they have thrown it over and over again over the years, and finally they did.

    I see no other option than those that were released in Iran if we take for granted that it was a drone strike.
    Maybe some small ones, released on the scene - but the damage looks quite serious.

    Saudi Coalition warplanes Bombard Yemen, causing a massacre following Houthi strikes on the UAE.




    Drone footage shows rescue teams on the scene amid the debris of a detention center in Saada, in northwestern Yemen, after a Saudi-led coalition airstrike. At least 70 people were reportedly killed in the blast.

    Saudi also show similar video and say they intercepted everything but people on twitter still report explosions in the cities.

    They control everything in those country. Truth can't come out easily.

    This video shows nothing. If they had something to show they would have.

    The UAE is yet another Arab country, that has pursued 'normalization' with Israel and fully recognized it.

    Israel approves multimillion-dollar joint R&D fund with UAE
    NIS 300 million to be allocated over next decade to support private sector collaboration and investment
    By Lazar Berman 23 January 2022, 4:55 pm

    Foreign Minister Yair Lapid shakes hands with UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi, on June 29, 2021. (Shlomi Amsalem GPO)

    Israel’s cabinet approved on Sunday a joint Israel-UAE R&D fund to support tech projects involving Israeli and Emirati companies.

    The fund is designed to encourage collaboration on technological innovation, and to help Israeli companies access resources that are not available in Israel, according to a statement from the Foreign Ministry.

    It will also help Israeli businesses find Emirati partners, navigate local regulations, and develop marketing strategies.

    The fund, which was proposed by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Orit Farkash-Hacohen, will allocate NIS 15 million a year over the next decade. The UAE will provide matching funds, for a total of NIS 300 million for the life of the fund.

    The UAE and Israel signed a normalization agreement in 2020 as part of the US-backed Abraham Accords.

    During his December visit to the UAE, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his host Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan agreed to open the fund.

    “This joint fund, and a corresponding joint business council, will harness leading economic and technological minds in the UAE and in Israel, and task them with commercializing solutions to challenges ranging from climate change and desertification to clean energy and future agriculture,” the two leaders said a joint statement.

    The fund will be managed on the Israeli side by the Foreign Ministry, Science Ministry, Finance Ministry, Economy Ministry, and Innovation Authority.
    Advertisement

    Lapid said in a statement that Israel and the UAE share a passion for advanced technology that improves citizens’ quality of life, protects the environment, and promotes economic development.

    “The bilateral R&D fund is the engine to start the process in the private sector, by encouraging companies, with an emphasis on SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to connect, to develop, to create, and to market innovative technological products in the region and globally,” he said.

    He also thanked his Emirati counterpart, Abdullah bin Zayed.

    Farkash-Hacohen said the fund would “create a bridge that would facilitate Emirati investments in Israeli technology” in energy, infrastructure and more.

    The fund is part of a wave of investment between the countries in the wake of the Abraham Accords. Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that the UAE sovereign-wealth fund Mubadala Investment invested $100 million in six Israeli venture capital firms.

    Which is all well and good, but it was never going to go down well with the Arab street

    US Bomb Parts Found After Saudi Mass Casualty Airstrike In Yemen
    Tyler Durden
    Sunday, Jan 23, 2022 - 11:55 PM

    The media wing for Yemen's Houthi rebels has released what it says is video evidence that US bombs are still being used by the Saudi coalition to attack civilian sites in Yemen.

    This after within the past days the Saudis have ramped up their airstrikes, including a bombing over Houthi-held northern Saada province which struck a migrant detention center, leaving at least 80 killed. Separately, airstrikes which hit a youth soccer field in Hodeidah left many casualties. In the past days an estimated over 200 Yemenis have been killed, with international human rights groups condemning the indiscriminate attacks on civilian areas.

    Concerning the deadly attack on the detention facility, a mass casualty event which went largely underreported on mainstream US networks, journalist Samuel Oakford details that "A weapon fragment reportedly recovered at the site of a Saudi-led coalition airstrike that killed at least 82 (per MSF) at a detention facility" appears to be from a US-made bomb.

    Despite the recovered fragment's manufacturing code clearly pointing to its Raytheon maker, so far it appears that only regional as well as Russian media has been reporting on it Sunday, though the evidence is being examined by a handful of Western journalists and NGOs as well:

    Video footage filmed in the aftermath of the airstrike by members of the Houthi rebel movement, which is in conflict with the Saudi-backed government, and shared on YouTube, shows distressing scenes of rescue workers removing bodies from the rubble. At one point, a fragment allegedly from a lethal weapon used in the raid is shown, with part of its identifying text and numbers visible.

    "That’s the manufacturer cage code for Raytheon," Marc Garlasco, a military adviser from the Netherlands-based PAX Protection of Civilians NGO wrote on Twitter, referring to the US’ Raytheon Technologies Corporation, one of the world’s largest aerospace and intelligence services suppliers.

    It's certainly not the first time US bombs and fragments have been recovered in Yemen after mass killings via Saudi-UAE-US airstrikes.

    However, especially since Biden took office, the US has pledged to withdraw its military from active execution of the war and airstrikes. Biden further campaigned on winding down the Yemen war which has raged since 2015 and taken the lives of hundreds of thousands.

    But it appears the US still involved via its steady weapons supplies to its Gulf partners, at a moment that Riyadh is pushing for more resupplies.
