(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The British military site Jane’s revealed that the UAE has built a military base on the island of Miyoun, near the Bab al-Mandab Strait.
The satellite images indicate that the UAE is setting up a large runway on the island between Yemen and Djibouti, adding that Abu Dhabi is building a base to support its military operations in southern Yemen and to strengthen its control of the strategically important Bab al-Mandab strait.
The British military site said the satellite images show the runway construction and indicate that the work did not begin before October, because the images that preceded that month did not show the existence of construction.
The establishment of the UAE military base in the island of Mayon, Yemen near Bab al-Mandab, comes under the current occupation of Yemen as part of the alliance of aggression on Yemen, of which the UAE is one of the main countries.
The magazine “Newsweek” American, pointed out that this military base will give the UAE full control of one of the most important strategic sea routes in the world, and the Bab al-Mandab strait
