Body of martyr soldier arrives in Abu Dhabi
The soldier died in Saudi Arabia while serving his national duty
The body of First corporal Saeed Matar Ali Al Kaabi, who lost his life on Thursday while serving with the UAE Forces, arrived in Abu Dhabi on Friday.
He was carrying out his national duty in the Najran region of Saudi Arabia as part of the Operations Decisive Storm and Restoring Hope, under the Saudi-led Arab Coalition to back Yemen’s legitimate government.
His body arrived on board a military aircraft of the armed forces, followed by a special military ceremony at the Al Bateen Executive airport, in the presence of several senior officers.
The General Headquarters earlier said it offered its “sympathy and deepest condolences” to the martyr’s family.
