The Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen Arabic TV channel falsely claimed, in its “Al-Zehira” one-hour programme broadcast yesterday from 15:00-16:00 hrs, that “Israel has completed the construction of its largest listening post at Emba-Soira, Eritrea” to monitor “maritime movements in the Bab-el Mendeb and eavesdrop on Iran”.
Eritrea is aware of Washington’s instigation not only of the attack against Eritrea that the TPLF launched last Sunday, June 12, 2016 but also in its deployment of weapons along the border for a much expanded offensive.
The TPLF regime has today, Sunday 12 June 2016, unleashed an attack against Eritrea on the Tsorona Central Front. The purpose and ramifications of this attack are not clear. The Government of Eritrea will issue further statements on the unfolding situation.
Eritrea has called on UN Human Rights Council (HRC) to stop the "Commission of Inquiry" (COI) from preventing a fair hearing on the human rights situation in Eritrea by preemptively releasing its report to the public.
Eritrea has received credible information that the "Commission of Inquiry" (COI) intends to publicly release its forthcoming "report" in advance; well before it is duly submitted to the 32"d Session of the Human Rights Commission. The latter is scheduled to take place from 13 June to 1 July, 2016.
