RABAT, Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Morocco on Monday condemned attacks by Yemen's Houthi militia on the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
The king, government and people of Morocco strongly condemn the attacks perpetrated by the Houthi militia and their supporters against the Musaffah industrial region and the Abu Dhabi International Airport, the statement added.
Morocco expressed its "full solidarity with the brotherly State of the United Arab Emirates in defending the security of its territories and the safety of its citizens," it said.
The Abu Dhabi police announced that the explosion of three oil tankers caused by a fire on Monday morning has killed three people, one Pakistani and two Indians, and injured six others.
Yemen's Houthi militia have claimed responsibility for a military operation that struck areas inside UAE on Monday, while initial investigations also show the fires and explosion were possibly caused by drones in the area.
