Abstract

Prospects for regional stability are damaged by the Gulf power struggle.A report by Africa Confidential highlighted the power struggle of the Gulf monarchies, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, in alliance with Egypt, against Qatar and Turkey, whom they see as leading supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates in the region. Saudi Arabia and the UAE have recently struck a series of military cooperation deals with Eritrea, Djibouti, Somaliland and Somalia to strengthen their position in the civil war across the Red Sea in Yemen. Sudan, Somalia and Ethiopia are all trying to navigate difficult diplomatic paths among these competing blocs.Saudi Arabia and the UAE want to use bases in the Horn in support of their bid to take control of the Yemeni coastline, cut the rebels’ supply lines, and intensify aerial and naval attacks from the south. Eritrea, Somalia and Sudan all have troops fighting alongside Saudi Arabia in Yemen.There are reports of Egyptian troop deployments to the Eritrean port of Assab. If these are confirmed, then Cairo will have joined forces there with Saudi Arabia and the UAE. At the same time, Turkey is adding Sudan's Suakin to its base in Somalia and a possible base in Djibouti. Could Egyptian and Turkish forces be drawn into the Yemeni civil war on opposite sides? The Horn of Africa is entering a dangerous phase. (Africa Confidential 9/2)
