Mysterious Airbase Under Construction on Strategic Island off Yemen | Assab 2.0 of UAE?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 25, 2021

The airbase also gives the controller access for operations into the Red Sea

A mysterious airbase is being built on a volcanic island—the Mayun Island off Yemen. No country has claimed the structure being built in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait.

The strait is one of the world’s crucial maritime chokepoints for both energy shipments and commercial cargo.is linked to the United Arab Emirates, AP reports.

Officials in Yemen’s government say that the UAE is behind the current attempt too. In 2019, UAE had announced that it was withdrawing its troops from a Saudi-led military campaign battling Yemen’s Houthi rebels.

Whoever controls an airbase on the Mayun island is automatically elevated to a position of power, as it allows them to launch airstrikes into conflict-ridden Yemen. The airbase also gives the controller access for operations into the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and nearby East Africa.

Dump trucks and graders building a 6,070-foot runway on the island can be seen on satellite images from Planet Labs Inc as of April 11.

Military officials have said that the recent tension between Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi and the UAE was partly due to UAE demanding that the Yemeni government sign a 20-year lease for Mayun island.

The strategic location of the island also known as Perim island has been recognised internationally. The island was under British control until 1967 when they departed from Yemen.

Ass per a 1981 CIA analysis, the Soviet Union, allied with South Yemen’s Marxist government, upgraded Mayun’s naval facilities but used them intermittently.

Officials in Yemen’s Internationally Recognized Government Now Say The Emiratis Are Behind This Latest Effort

The apparent decision by the Emiratis to resume building the air base comes after the UAE dismantled parts of a military base it ran in the East African nation of Eritrea as a staging ground for its Yemen campaign.

While the Horn of Africa “has become a dangerous place” for the Emiratis due to competitors and local war risks, Mayun has a small population and offers a valuable site for monitoring the Red Sea, said Eleonora Ardemagni, an analyst at the Italian Institute for International Political Studies. The region has seen a rise in attacks and incidents.
