US Dubai UAE Houthi Rebels US F-22 Fighter Jets



In view of the increasing attacks by Houthi rebels on the United Arab Emirates, the US F-22 fighter jets of the US Air Force have reached the UAE on Saturday. These fighter jets landed at Al-Dhafra Air Base in Abu Dhabi, where about 2,000 American soldiers are already present.

US troops launched Patriot interceptor missiles in response to Houthi attacks last month. For the first time since the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, US troops have used this system in a combat.

US officials declined to say how many F-22s are stationed or the number of airmen supporting the plane, citing operational security. However, a photo later released by the Air Force showed six F-22s in a line on a taxiway in al-Dhafra.

“The jet’s presence will bolster the security of an already strong partner nation and send a message to destabilizing forces that the United States and our allies will enable peace and stability in the region,” said US Air Force Commander Lieutenant, Middle East Command, General Greg Gillott. Committed to.”

Houthi rebels carried out three attacks last month
Iran-backed Houthi fighters carried out three attacks last month targeting Abu Dhabi, including one on a fuel depot. Three people were killed and six were injured in this attack. The Presidents of South Korea and Israel were on a tour of the UAE when these attacks took place. An unknown Iraqi group carried a drone targeting the Emirates in early February, although officials say they have halted the attack.

America has given a big reaction to missiles targeting the Emirates. The US Army has sent USS Cole on the mission to Abu Dhabi.
