Security sources have revealed on Wednesday that there are new arrangements for establishing a military base of the Zionist entity in Mahrah province, with British-Emirati support and cover, in a move that reflects the efforts of foreign powers to militarise the eastern regions of Yemen in order to drain its wealth and strengthen control of maritime navigation.
This was reported by Yemen News Portal.
According to sources, a group of military experts and engineers from the Zionist entity have secretly arrived in Mahrah, meaning to designate a suitable place in the province in order to establish a Zionist military base.
The sources explained that the occupation seeks to provide the base with surveillance stations and communications devices for intelligence work.
They stressed that Zionist moves in Mahrah were taking place under the cover of British forces in the province.
A few days ago, the head of the Mahrah sit-in protest committee, Sheikh Ali Salem al-Harizi, has confirmed the presence of Israeli military officers in the province.
The occupation forces are seeking to strengthen their military presence on the country’s eastern coasts, after appearing directly on the west coast and establishing bases on the strategic islands of Mayyun and Socotra.
