Houthi Envoy? Iranian Base? Deliberate Disinformation on Eritrea

Concerted and deliberate disinformation on Eritrea have ratcheted up these days for reasons that are not difficult to figure out. The main culprits are certain intelligence agencies masquerading as independent think tanks and their TPLF (Ethiopian) minions.

 

Concerted and deliberate disinformation on Eritrea have ratcheted up these days for reasons that are not difficult to figure out. The main culprits are certain intelligence agencies masquerading as independent think tanks and their TPLF (Ethiopian) minions.

The latest planted story is the purported visit of a Houthi delegation to Eritrea. The purpose of this disinformation ploy is to insinuate links with Iran.

Iran has Embassies in Djibouti, Ethiopia and the Republic of Sudan. It has also considerable investments and trade relations with these countries.

In Eritrea, Iran is represented by a non-resident Ambassador. But normative Eritrea-Iran ties are misconstrued for purposes of disinformation.

The old story revolved around non-existing Israeli and Iranian military bases in Eritrea – a truly explosive mix.

This time, it is Iranian/Houthi dimension.
