Group claims Egypt is building a military base in Eritrea

The Red Sea Afar Democratic Organization (RSADO), an Eritrean opposition group, claimed Egypt has the green light to build a military base in Eritrea, Sudan Tribune reports. Sources say Eritrea is allowing Egypt to build “a military base in Nora locality at the Dahlak Island for an indefinite period of time,” with 20k-30k naval forces to be deployed there. “Some Ethiopian politicians argue that Egypt’s growing interest to secure military incursion in the Horn of Africa intends to contain Ethiopia’s massive hydro-power project,” Sudan Tribune says.
