‘Mysterious’ airbase being built on island off Yemen linked to UAE

A “mysterious” airbase being built on a volcanic island in the Strait of Bab al-Mandeb, off Yemen’s southwestern coast and at the cusp of a key global maritime energy trade route, has been traced to the United Arab Emirates, even though the country has claimed to have disengaged from Yemen militarily.

No country has come forward to claim the airbase, which is situated at the southern entrance to the Red Sea on Mayun Island, but shipping traffic associated with a previous attempt to build a massive runway across the 5.6-km island points to the involvement of the neighboring United Arab Emirates (UAE).

An investigation carried out by The Associated Press (AP), using satellite images, has blown the lid off the airbase, revealing that the United Arab Emirates is most likely building the base.
