Al-Adid base in Qatar. American military base al-Adid in Qatar
Another name for this American military base, located in the West of the Qatari capital Doha, is Abu nahle airfield. In fact, al-Adid is the base of a coalition of Pro-Western forces in the Persian Gulf. In 1999, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad, asked the United States authorities to send ten thousand well-trained soldiers to the country to stand up for his government. In fact, the United States and Qatar began military cooperation in 1991 after the joint operation against Iraq "desert Storm" and even signed a corresponding agreement with each other.
Another important fact is that in 2003, the American center for training air operations in the middle East was transferred to Qatar's al-Adid from the Molk Sultan air base in Saudi Arabia. During the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, this base became a command and support center for coalition forces. On July 17, 2012, Wall Street magazine wrote in one of its articles on the new American missile radar in Qatar: "This radar station should improve the missile defense system designed to protect the interests of the United States and its allies." The announcement of the creation of an American missile radar in a certain secret location in Qatar is another proof that the foreign policy of the United States is pursuing a militaristic strategy that poses a threat to the security of the entire region, because in recent years this country has been actively increasing the number of its military bases in the middle East and especially in the Persian Gulf.
