The National Emergency and Crisis and Disasters Management Authority of the United Arab Emirates Sunday denied the claim by Yemen’s Houthi rebels to have fired a ballistic missile at the Barakah nuclear power plant under construction in Abu Dhabi. Workmen there saw no sign of any explosion, said the statement, and, furthermore, the UAE has a highly advanced air defense system for such attacks. DEBKAfile: Either the Houthis made it up, or their missile dropped in the desert or the sea.

    On Houthi menu there is mostly one choice, the Fasoolia salad, which is in fact kidney beans with jalapeno. rebels eat a lot of beans. During the Sujud payer, when they go ass up, it is common to draw farts. And when a whole platoon is concerting, it may sound as a ballistic launch.
