Well, in the way politics / religion works in the Middle East, the Houthis and Iran are the same thing. This is Iran showing their displeasure. Poor things.

That is not quite what is going on here. But if the UAE backed militias succeed, there will be less need for the Saudi outposts, bases and other infrastructure to intercept missile attacks. However, clearly the UAE pays the price and becomes subject to the guys in sandals that walk up mountains with ladders and catch fools completely by surprise.
Iran switches from attacking Saudi by proxy to attacking UAE by proxy. Also, doing this means Iran will be searching for an alternate route to deliver its weapon and supplies to these guys. What route you think they would take? Or what route could they take I should surmise. Perhaps they would become involved in Somalia then???
