Houthis Launch Strike on The Saudi Abha Airport

The presentation of new weapons purpotedly created by the Houthi forces

"We call on the aggressors to withdraw from Yemen, as the Republic of Yemen rejects aggression, siege and air embargo", Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, head of the rebels' Higher Revolutionary Committee, tweeted.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2014, when Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including the capital, Sanaa. "We are part of the coalition", the official said, adding that the drawdown was discussed extensively with the Saudis.

Saudi Arabia and UAE intervened in Yemen's civil war in 2015.

The pullback "highlights the UAE's long-standing concern for its worldwide standing amid mounting criticism of the civilian toll of the war", he has said.

Official UN figures say that more than 15,000 people have been killed in Yemen since the Saudi-led bombing campaign began.

In March 2018, rights group Amnesty International accused Western countries of supplying arms to Riyadh and its allies, who could stand guilty of war crimes in Yemen.

Furthermore, Emirati-trained local troops will "continue to do [UAE] bidding" on the ground, he said.

Al-Humaidi said his rights group has documented "serious violations" during the trial of the defendants.

The diplomats said Abu Dhabi preferred to have its forces and equipment on hand should tension between the United States and Iran escalate further after attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf and Tehran's downing of a U.S. unmanned drone.

"We're very, very protected when it comes to drones".

Yemeni women receive food aid in the coastal city of Hodeidah on June 14, 2018. Over 6,000 children have either been killed or sustained serious injuries since 2015, United Nations children's agency said.

The official confirmed that UAE troop levels are down, describing it as a "strategic redeployment".

As part of growing tensions between Iran and the U.S. and its allies, Iran has been accused of being behind the acts of sabotage on foreign oil tankers, including those from Saudi Arabia, off the Emirati port of Fujairah.
