The UAE Embassy in the Hague just posted an update after the gas explosion that took place on Sunday.
"All UAE citizens are safe, and no one was hurt by the blast that occurred in Laakwartier neighbourhood."   

Dutch authorities are investigating the cause of a gas explosion that blew the facade off an apartment building, injuring 10 people, including four who were rescued from under the rubble.
Firefighters and search-and-rescue teams using sniffer dogs freed the final person early Monday after he had spent some eight hours buried in the wreckage in a neighborhood of The Hague.
The Dutch city says that 27 apartments have been evacuated.
The powerful blast on Sunday scattered broken glass over streets more than a block away and sent bricks crashing onto a car and a van parked in front of the building.
The Hague says eight of the injured were taken to hospitals for treatment.
Their conditions were not known.
