US Bases In Gulf On High Alert

Published on Monday, 03 Jun 08:26 am

American bases in the Arabian Gulf have been put on high alert in anticipation of any kind of fallout to the security deterioration in Syria and Iraq, a local daily reported yesterday quoting a “senior military official” familiar with the subject. The senior Kuwaiti official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to disclose the information to the press. He made these remarks to a local daily without providing any further details on the topic. The same report also quoted Undersecretary of Kuwait Foreign Ministry Khalid al-Jarallah who described a proposed security agreement between the Gulf Cooperation Council countries as ‘a protective wall’. “The challenges we are facing are huge, which requires the presence of an impenetrable security system or structure for the GCC region”, he said at the conclusion of a training course for Foreign Ministry employees Thursday.
