The minister praised Al Kaabi who had spent his life serving the homeland and sacrificed his life for the sake of a humanitarian cause as he was responsible for the UAE’s humanitarian projects in Afghanistan.

H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed offered his heartfelt condolences to Al Kaabi’s family. He also prayed to Allah Almighty to rest his soul and to grant solace and patience to his family.
