Abu Dhabi: Three people were killed, including two Indian nationals, and six wounded following a suspected drone attack at petrol tanks near a major oil storage facility here on Monday.
“We have heard from the authorities here that two Indians died,” India’s envoy to the UAE, Sunjay Sudhir, was quoted as saying by NDTV.
“We are trying to find out their identities. We will reach out to their families… Stay calm. The UAE is a very peaceful place,” Sudhir said.
“The explosion at Mussafah, near ADNOC’s storage tanks, has led to 3 casualties, which includes 2 Indian nationals. The Indian Embassy in UAE is in close touch with concerned UAE authorities for further details,” Indian Embassy in UAE was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
However, according to reports, Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement said it carried out the attack on the UAE.
