US marines reinforce UAE forces in Socotra

SANAA -A new batch of United State Marine Corps arrived on Saturday in Socotra Island after installing the Patriot systems, according to local sources.

The sources affirmed that the UAE occupying forces received and transferred a large group of American soldiers to the headquarters prepared by the UAE forces on the island.

The US forces had sent military experts to equip observation points to deploy radars and air defense points on the island overlooking Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean, aimed to establish a US military base on the island in the future.

On December 24, 2019, the American forces arrived and started installing Patriot missiles protecting the Saudi and Emirati forces in the island.

According to the sources, the Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman directed on December 21, 2019, that the Saudi-backed exiled Hadi’s government was to agree with the UAE previous request to rent the island for about 95 years.

Washington’s efforts to develop a military base on the island had been a hope for taking over for decades.

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd”
    on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take
    care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
