The United States is sending a warship and fighter jets to help defend the United Arab Emirates after a series of missile and drone attacks by Yemeni rebels that left some dead in the wealthy Gulf state.
The deployment to assist the UAE against the threat follows a phone call between Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the U.S. Embassy in the UAE said.
Austin and the crown prince “discussed the recent Houthi attacks against the UAE that caused civilian casualties and also threatened U.S. and Emirati armed forces stationed at Al Dhafra air base,” the embassy added.
The USS Cole guided missile destroyer will partner with the UAE Navy and make a port call in Abu Dhabi, while the U.S. will also deploy fifth-generation warplanes.
The USS Cole, wasin the Yemeni port of Aden back in October 2000 that killed 17 US sailors.
The rebel attacks on the UAE have added a new dimension to, which has killed hundreds of thousands of people directly or indirectly and displaced millions.
Three workers were killed in aand airport on January 17, triggering a salvo of deadly air strikes in retaliation.
On January 24, U.S. forces stationed at Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra air base fired Patriot interceptors and scrambled to bunkers as two ballistic missiles were shot down over the city.
And this week a third missile attack was thwarted during a visit to the UAE by Israeli President Isaac Herzog.
The U.S. govenment, a staunch Saudi and UAE ally, intends the deployment to be “a clear signal that the United States stands with the UAE as a long-standing strategic partner,” according to the U.S. Embassy in the UAE.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 6) foretell that there will be wars and rumors of wars in the Last Days signaling the world is nearing the end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
