UAE and Israel building joint military bases on occupied Yemeni Island of Socotra

An informed source revealed that the UAE and Israel have completed preparations for the establishment of intelligence bases on Yemen’s Socotra island, Yemen Press Agency reported.

The source told Yemen Press Agency that the UAE and Israel have completed logistical preparations for the establishment of intelligence bases to gather information from all over the Gulf of Aden, the Bab al-Mandab Strait and the southern Yemeni provinces, which are under the control of the invading coalition.

Yesterday, the UAE Air Force took 28 Israeli officers and soldiers to the Socotra archipelago before they were transported by helicopter to the Island of Samhah, which is one of the archipelago’s islands.

International reports revealed the arrival of a joint delegation of Israeli and Emirati intelligence officers in Socotra last year, and their examination of various sites to establish military bases, after the installation of a military communications network last August.

All these moves by the UAE and Israel come amid the silence of the Hadi puppet government and a failure to comment on the imperialist encroachment on Yemeni lands.
