The United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi was under attack late Sunday night, with air defense systems engaging at least one ballistic missile in the skies above the city, the UAE Ministry of Defense (MOD) announced in a tweet.

Israel’s President Isaac Herzog and his wife Michal are currently in the UAE for an official two-day visit, the first-ever such visit by an Israeli president. Both are safe. President Herzog said he will continue his visit to the UAE, as planned, regardless of the Houthi missile attack, his spokesperson said in a statement shortly after.

“The attack did not result in any losses, as the remnants of the ballistic missile fell outside the populated areas,” the ministry said. UAE air forces, together with the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen, subsequently destroyed the the missile launch site in Yemen’s Al-Jawf governorate, the statement said. The ministry affirmed its “full readiness to deal with any threats,” adding it will “take all necessary measures to protect the UAE from any attacks.”

The missile fire was reportedly aimed at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Air traffic was immediately suspended, temporarily.
