Egypt to build new military base to secure Suez Canal

Egypt is preparing to build a new military base on the country’s eastern border to secure the Suez Canal, according to reports, as the country marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of the waterway.

“The new base will secure the canal’s shipment activity, tunnels, as well as its economic zone,” the sources noted, as reported by the Middle East Monitor. The new base would be located in the Ismailia governorate’s Abu Sultan, adding that it would be built along an area of 160,000 acres, according to sources.
