Three fuel tanks exploded near depots of Abu Dhabi oil company ADNOC on Monday, the emirate’s police said, adding that the blast may be caused by a drone hit.

A small fire also broke out in the construction area of the new airport of the UAE capital Abu Dhabi.
Meanwhile, Houthi military spokesman Yahya Saree told the Almasirah broadcaster that the Yemeni rebel group will soon reveal details about the military operation in the UAE territory.
