Gulf Crisis: Qatar Withdraws Its Troops Between Eritrea And Djibouti In The Midst Of The Gulf Crisis!!

Qatar announced Wednesday it has withdrawn its observation force deployed since 2010 between Eritrea and Djibouti in order to prevent a conflict between the two African countries from degenerating.

In a statement issued on Wednesday (June 14th), the Foreign Ministry said that “the State of Qatar had informed the government of Djibouti of the withdrawal of all its troops deployed at the border with Eritrea”. He said that Qatar had been a “neutral mediator” in this region of Africa, but did not specify how many soldiers this force formed.


A region under tension

This withdrawal comes in the midst of a crisis between Qatar and its neighbors, many of whom have broken with this wealthy small Gulf gas emirate by accusing it of supporting “terrorism”. Although a military escalation of the crisis is avoided, tension remains in the region. It follows a statement by Eritrea, which supported Saudi Arabia and its allies in the dispute between them and Qatar. An old territorial dispute opposes Eritrea to Djibouti, which gave rise in 2010 to fighting at the border.
