Two Indians were among three people killed in Abu Dhabi on Monday after three fuel tankers exploded in an industrial area near the international airport. The explosions are suspected to have been caused due to attacks, said United Arab Emirates (UAE) authorities. A minor fire broke out in a area at the international airport.

“Initial investigations found parts of a small plane that could possibly be a at both sites that could have caused the explosions and the fire,” the police said in a statement to state news agency WAM.

A Pakistani national was the third person who was killed in the explosions that occurred at the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company facility. Six others were also injured in the attack.

The Industrial area, Mussafah, is situated about 20 km from the Presidential Palace and around 10 km from the US and Saudi Arabian embassies.

Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi movement has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The military spokesman of Yemen’s Houthi movement, which is battling a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia, where the UAE is a member country, said the group launched a military operation “deep in the UAE” and would announce details in the coming hours.

The rebels later announced that they had launched ‘military operations’ in the UAE. Pro-coalition forces backed by the UAE have recently joined fighting against the Houthis in Yemen’s -producing regions of Shabwa and Marib.
