BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – Algeria has begun the construction of a strategic military base on the western border of the country, opposite a Moroccan military base.

Quoting unnamed military sources, Al-Shorouk reported yesterday evening that the Algerian high authorities decided to build a strategic military base in a location close to the Moroccan base.

The newspaper confirmed that this strategic decision by Algeria comes in response to the decree of the Moroccan Prime Minister, Saadeddine El-Othmani, in mid-May to allocate a land of 23 hectares, in the border region of Jaradah, to build a military base for the Royal Armed Forces.

The newspaper pointed out, through private and informed sources, that “the construction of a Moroccan military base shows a clear hostile plan towards Algeria, and reveals the implementation of hostile international agendas against the stability of the region,” and that Algeria’s decision came “according to the principle of reciprocity,” adding that the construction of the military base would be intended to protect national security.
