The United Arab Emirates intercepted a ballistic missile fired by Yemen's Houthi rebels early Monday, January 31, 2022, as the Israeli President visited the country, authorities said, the third such attack in recent weeks.

The attack amid President Isaac Herzog's visit only fuels the ongoing tensions affecting the wider Persian Gulf, which has seen a series of attacks as Iran's nuclear deal with world powers collapsed and Yemen's yearslong war raged.
