Is the USA sending Fighter jets to UAE

The move came after a series of Houthi attacks on the UAE, one which targeted an airbase where US troops are positioned.

The Yemen-based rebel group also known as Houthis has claimed three missile and drone attacks on the UAE since January 17. The United States will send a guided-missile destroyer and fifth-generation fighter jets to the Arab Kingdom.

The latest attack was done on Monday when the UAE intercepted and wrecked a ballistic missile launched at it, marking the third such incident this month. The attack came as Isaac Herzog; the Israeli President made a first-ever visit by an Israeli head of state to the Gulf nation.

Three foreign workers were killed when the nation was first targeted on 17 January, while the al-Dhafra airbase was targeted right after, as well as “vital and important” locations in Dubai.

On Thursday, the US advised its citizens not to travel to the UAE over the threat of Houthi missile or drone attacks.
