BAGHDAD, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- An unknown Iraqi armed group calling itself the Brigades of the Promise of Righteousness on Wednesday claimed responsibility for the attack on the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with four drones.

A statement by the group posted on its account on Telegram said that its members had launched a strike on the UAE earlier in the day with four drones that targeted vital facilities in the capital Abu Dhabi.

"The group confirmed that it will continue to launch strikes until the UAE lifts its hand from interfering in the affairs of the countries in the region, especially Yemen and Iraq," said the statement, whose authenticity could not be independently verified.

"The coming strikes will be more severe and painful," it added.

Earlier in the day, the UAE Defense Ministry said in a statement that it had intercepted and destroyed three drones that penetrated the Gulf country's airspace over unpopulated areas in the early morning. Enditem
