Satellite footage proves continued UAE military construction on occupied Socotra

The geospatial intelligence observation unit GEOINT has said that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) continues to build illegal military infrastructure on Yemen’s Socotra archipelago, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

According to the GEOINT, the UAE is probably building an airfield at Abd Al Kuri Island (Kilmia), which is a part of the Socotra Archipelago.

“Two runway-shaped strips and a probable apron area have been outlined and graded since the beginning of 2022,” the GEOINT observation added.
