PENTAGON IS BUILDING MISSILE DEFENCE RADAR STATIONS IN QATAR – in preparation for war with Iran

THE Pentagon is building a missile defence radar station at a covert location in Qatar, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

The site will be part of a system intended to defend the interests of the United States and its allies against Iranian rockets, unnamed US officials told the newspaper.

The Journal also reported that Washington was preparing for its biggest-ever minesweeping exercises in the Gulf in September, calling them the ‘first such multilateral drills in the region’.

A similar radar has existed on Mount Keren in the Negev Desert since 2008 and another is installed in Turkey as part of NATO’s missile defence shield.

In addition, officials told the Journal that US Central Command, which oversees US military operations in the Middle East and South Asia, wants to deploy the first Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile system in the area in the coming months, possibly in the United Arab Emirates.

Tensions with Iran are rife in the Gulf region.

An Indian fisherman was killed and three others wounded on Monday when a US navy ship opened fire on their vessel near the United Arab Emirates port of Jebel Ali in the southern Gulf.
