Bab al-Mandab, Yemen
17 January 2023

Marking the anniversary of an attack against civilian targets in the UAE by what CENTCOM described as “Iran-aligned forces”, ie, the Huthis, the White House affirmed that “the U.S. will continue to support the UAE as it defends itself against threats – whether from Yemen or anywhere else. We remain steadfast in our pursuit of diplomacy to bring a peaceful end to the war in Yemen, and the U.S. will continue to support the security of the UAE and our other partners in the Middle East, including providing needed military assistance”.
