DUBAI // Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, has glorified the sacrifices made by Emiratis in a nabati poem titled We're all the Nation's Soldiers.

The poem is a monologue addressed to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces. It emphasises the people’s love for Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed and their willingness to follow him.

Citizens are the protective fence of this nation and their lives are a small price to pay, writes Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.

The Dubai Ruler describes Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed as a falcon, adding: “We’re all with you, falcon of the falcons.”

He writes that the UAE people are behind Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed’s efforts to bring peace and stability to the region and to defend his brethren.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid also praises the role of the Arm-ed Forces in the Saudi-led coalition to defeat the Houthi militias that have wreaked havoc in Yemen.

He then glorifies the stature of the country’s fallen sons, stating that they are source of pride, while the calamity and the tragic loss that shook the country this week will only harden its resolve and determination.

He concludes his poem by saying that the day of victory will be achieved because of the UAE’s unbreakable determination.
