Pentagon Sends Warship and Planes to UAE; Saudi Arabia and Israel Hold Joint Naval Exercises

HeadlineFeb 03, 2022

The Pentagon says it’s sending a guided-missile destroyer and fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates as Houthi rebels in Yemen step up attacks. The UAE’s military said it shot down three Houthi drones Wednesday — the fourth such attack in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Israel’s military has joined massive U.S.-led naval war games in waters around the Arabian Peninsula. Naval ships from Oman and Saudi Arabia are also participating. It’s the first joint military exercise involving both Israel and Saudi Arabia — two countries that have no formal diplomatic ties.
