Emirati forces establish new illegal base in capital of Socotra archipelago

The UAE occupation has established a new camp in the city of Hadibo, the capital of the Socotra archipelago.

According to media outlets, the UAE equipped the camp with all military equipment and mechanisms in the city, after developing a joint military airport with naval forces of the Zionist entity of “Israel”.

The sources indicated that “the UAE has continued to send military experts of different nationalities, including Israelis, to the island, where the Zionist entity has had a military base since the year 2020.”

The establishment of the camp came after the return of mercenary leader Abdullah Issa bin Afrar, head of the so-called General Council of the Sons of Mahrah and Socotra, who has long been accused of treason and complicity with the occupiers of the island.

The Emirati forces subsequently arrested the head of the branch of the separatist movement known as the Southern Transitional Council on the island of Socotra, a man called Raafat Al Thaqali.
