UAE builds air & naval base in Eritrea to support its attack on Yemen

"The United Arab Emirates has deployed a combat air group to Eritrea's Assab airport to support its military operation in southern Yemen, Airbus Defence and Space satellite imagery shows." "Satellite imagery also shows UAE Navy vessels have been using Assab's commercial port since at least September 2015." "Vessels from the UAE National Marine Dredging Company are also building a new port facility next to the airport that is likely to be used as a dedicated naval base once completed."
