The Houthies have claimed to target Abu Dhabi Air Port with a suicide drone. Footage published by Houthies of the attack that hit two trucks inside the airport. The claimed the footage was released by an employee who works inside the air port and loyal to the Houthies. Probably a Yemeni national.

Is this a new attack (there was a Houthi drone attack against Abu Dhabi airport in July 2018, which the UAE denied though later confirmed some trucks were damaged - which seems to fit with the video)?

I have not heard about the July attack! This one here is new. No details so far. It was most likely launched from the Arabian Sea. Do you know believe me when I told you Houthies have sleeping cells inside the GCC. In Saudi Arabia there are about 4 millions Yemenis let alone the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Qatar. I think the authority should deport them back to Yemen.

I think this is not new, this is from the July 2018 attack. Check Twitter, that is what everyone is confirming (there is also no news about a new attack).

These are the news from July 2018 about the attack on Abu Dhabi International Airport:

This is actually fake news. If you pause the video at 0:27

You see the light reflection

Regardless of the authenticity of the video, Airports should use Counter-UAV systems.

DXB implemented it 5yrs+ back, I'm pretty sure AD has it as well.

Fake video btw - There have been no atttacks on the UAE by Houthis, in history.

The UAE hosts half a million Iranis, they are not going to risk that.
