United Arab Emirates has deployed 17 combat and transport aircrafts in Assab, Eritrea

Tigrai Online, Ethiopian News, Nov. 13, 2016

United Arab Emirates has deployed 17 combat and transport aircrafts in Assab, Eritrea 60 kilometers from Ethiopia

The United Arab Emirates has deployed fighter jets and many other military combat and transport aircrafts in the port city of Assab in southern Eritrea. The port of Assab is less than 60 kilometers from the tense border of Ethiopia and Eritrea.

IHS Jane's Information Group a British publishing company specializing in military, defense, intelligence, Security, aerospace and transportation published the news  on November 11, 2016.


The intelligence group said the massive deployment took place on October 20, 2016. Airbus Defense and Satellite imagery systems shows varsity of aircraft and military deployment in Assab port.

Some of the military aircrafts include nine Mirage 2000 jet fighters, four helicopters, one Hercules transport aircraft and two other transport airplanes. All these military hardware is on top of what Saudi Arabia and the UAI build in Assab.

We know the fake reason given for all the military buildup at the Ethiopian door steps is “to support their operation in Yemen” is it? Or is it to get land access to the mainland in Ethiopia? Saudi Arabia and Yemen share thousands of kilometers border and they are connected one hundred percent by land there is no need to go across the red sea to support their troops in Yemen. The real reason is they are trying to encircle Ethiopia and connect with Ethiopian and Somalia extremists for easy transportation to Ethiopia and other parts of Africa.

Ethiopians don’t need a reminder to the consequences of Arab and Eritrean involvement in Ethiopian affairs. What did the Ethiopian government do to country this deadly long-term strategic threat from the Arab countries and their puppet the president for life in Eritrea? The answer is Absolutely Nothing.

There are multiple options for the Ethiopian government to protect Ethiopia’s sphere of influence in the Horn of Africa. It is about for the government to take tangible actions to force the Arabs away from our backyard before they establish deep roots in Africa.

Meanwhile the United Nations Security Council Extended Arms Embargoes on Eritrea Adopting Resolution 2317 (2016) by 10 Votes in Favour, with 5 Abstentions. The Security Council also extended the mandate of the Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group until 15 December 2017, and urged the Eritrean regime to let the monitoring group entry into the African North Korea.
