Two separate explosions occurred in the United Arab Emirates' capital Abu Dhabi and its tourism hub Dubai on Monday.

Iran Press/Middle East: Three people were killed and several others were injured on Monday in two separate explosions in the United Arab Emirates' capital Abu Dhabi and its tourism hub Dubai, the police and local media said.

The street is also known as the main road to the airport, where top aides to US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are expected to land later on Monday, in a historic trip between Israel and another Arab country.

The police said the Abu Dhabi incident also caused several minor and moderate injuries, and residents of the building and surrounding areas were evacuated. The Abu Dhabi government media office said the blast was caused by a "misalignment in the gas container fittings following refueling."

The explosions follow a recent agreement between the UAE and the Zionist regime to make public the normalization of Abu Dhabi-Tel Aviv relations.

The United Arab Emirates and Israel agreed on August 13 to fully normalize diplomatic relations following US President Donald Trump's efforts to facilitate this action between the Arab and Zionist regimes.

This agreement has been widely slammed in the Islamic world.
