Press release
Al-Jezeera’s Relentelss
Campaigns of Disinformation

The Doha-based Al-Jezeera Tv Stations – both English and Arabic Channels – have been spewing false and vicious news about Eritrea this week. This is not, of course, the first time for these Channels to broadcast ludicrous allegations against Eritrea.

In the current news broadcast, Al-Jeezera alleges that “Eritrea is holding Yemeni prisoners” at the “United Arab Emirates military base in Assab”.

Al Jezeera does not provide any evidence or material proof to validate its outrageous claims. It shows satellite photos of some buildings in Assab but deliberately juxtaposes to them footage of detention centers and detainees in Yemen! This is outright and despicable dishonesty. read more
