The three Emirati soldiers martyred in Yemen have achieved glory by shedding blood for the sake of peace, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has said.
"Allah will bless our martyrs whose memories and sacrifices will remain alive among us," Shaikh Mohammed said, as he visited the martyrs' houses in Sharjah and Ajman to offer condolences to their families.
He paid rich tribute to the soldiers, citing their sincerity and allegiance to the homeland and the leadership. He stressed that the leadership will spare no effort for the welfare of their families.
The three Emirati soldiers, First Corporals Khalid Mohammed Abdullah Al Shehhi, Fahim Saeed Ahmed Al Habsi and Juma Jawhar Juma Al Hammadi, were killed while performing their national duty as part of Saudi Arabia-led Operation Restoring Hope, which seeks to support the legitimate government in Yemen.
Shaikh Mohammed prayed to Allah to bestow His mercy on the martyrs and to grant their families patience and fortitude to bear the loss.
He conveyed to the martyrs' families the pride of the leadership in the Armed Forces and sacrifices of Emirati youth.
