Abu Dhabi terror attack: 2 Indian victims identified


DUBAI – Two Indians killed in a terror attack in Abu Dhabi have been identified, according to the Indian Embassy on Tuesday (January 18).

A Pakistani national was also killed after a suspected drone attack sparked a fire and subsequent explosions at three fuel tankers in the Abu Dhabi national Oil Company (ADNOC) fuel depot in Al Mussafah on Monday (January 17).

The three victims were employees of ADNOC. Six people were also injured in the incident. Police did not identify the wounded, but described their injuries as “mild to moderate.

According to the Indian Embassy, officials are already in touch with the families of the victims.

“The mission is working closely with UAE authorities, including ADNOC, for early repatriation of mortal remains,” according to the embassy.

The embassy also said that two Indians were among the six people injured, but that the two have been discharged from hospital on Monday night after receiving medical treatment.

Meanwhile, UAE officials have vowed that the attack by Yemen’s Houthi militia will not go unpunished. The group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

“We reiterate that those responsible for this unlawful targeting of our country will be held accountable,” Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said in a statement on Tuesday (January 18). ICA/Expat Media
