United Arab Emirates: “Italy is concerned about the attacks conducted in the Musaffah industrial area near Abu Dhabi.”
With these words, the Italian Foreign Ministry with an official statement expressed the Italian position on the very serious terrorist attack that took place yesterday morning against some civilian targets. The attack in Abu Dhabi was claimed by Yemeni Houthi militias, directly connected to Iran.
“Italy manifests solidarity with the families of the victims – continues the statement – and closeness to the Government of the United Arab Emirates and expresses a firm condemnation for a gesture which, fueling the spiral of violence, is likely to have repercussions on the stability of the entire region “.
“Having acknowledged the claim by the Houthis, – concludes the note from the Farnesina – Italy believes that similar attacks, conducted against civilian targets, jeopardize the resumption of the political process for peace in Yemen, which we strongly support by confirming the full confidence in the efforts of UN Special Envoy Grundberg for a negotiated solution ”.
Specifically, as revealed by the Abu Dhabi Police (ADP), the attack caused a fire, which broke out in the Musaffah ICAD 3 area near the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) with the consequent explosion of three oil tankers. .
The terrorist attack led to the deaths of a Pakistani and two Indians, while six other people sustained minor and moderate injuries, added local authorities who are continuing their investigations.
