Algerian State Radio: The UAE is leading a campaign, in cooperation with Israel and Morocco, to create a wedge between the Sahel countries and Algeria

Algerian radio announced what it said was information indicating that the UAE was granting money to Morocco to carry out a media campaign trying to wedge between Algeria and the Sahel countries, in the first explicit attack by the government media in Algeria, on the UAE, which Algerian media has been talking about for months about a role that raises political concern. And the media in the country.

The radio reported in news published on its website, citing informed sources, that “the UAE granted 15 million euros to Morocco in order to launch a media campaign and campaigns on social forums with the aim of undermining the stability of the Sahel countries.”

She highlighted that “this campaign also aims to spread false news and malicious propaganda with the aim of creating a charged atmosphere in relations between Algeria and the Sahel countries.” This budget, estimated at 15 million euros, according to the radio, will be used to buy shares in some media outlets in France and Africa, according to the radio.

Algerian sources say that the UAE granted 15 million euros to Morocco to carry out a media campaign that attempts to wedge relations between Algeria and the Sahel countries.

Radio sources said, “There is an axis consisting of the Israeli entity, the Emirates, and Morocco, which is working to launch a campaign targeting the countries of Mali and Niger to market the idea that Algeria is financing attacks on their stability.” The radio article added: “But everyone knows that this camouflage will never succeed, because Algeria is a country that spreads peace, while Morocco, the Emirates, and the Israeli entity threaten peace in the world with their actions.”

This report coincides with a renewed attack by Algerian newspapers on the Emirati role in the region. Al-Khabar newspaper wrote a day ago in its editorial: “The evil coming from the Emirates... to Algeria and then Sudan.” She stated that the information and analyzes were not mistaken in that the United Arab Emirates has become a key player in sabotaging the Arab countries that defend their sovereignty.

The newspaper added, “Algeria is the biggest target for the heirs of Sheikh Zayed. It was not spared from its evil, hatred, and harm, just as sister Sudan was not spared from the poisons of the rulers of Abu Dhabi, who seek to divide this rich country and spread chaos in it, until their anger arose and they expelled from their pure lands 15 Emirati diplomats who were proven to be “Their involvement in serious hostilities.” The French-language newspaper Le Soir d'Algerie also described the UAE as a "fire-setting country."

The Algerian media has been warning for about 6 months about the suspicious role of the UAE and its efforts to try to undermine the stability of Algeria. From what Al-Khabar newspaper published a few days ago, the Emirati authorities brought in members of the Israeli intelligence service “Shin Bet” to employ them with the Emirati security service, in a move that it said “perpetuates the persistence in harming Arab issues and the interests of the peoples of the region.”

The newspaper reported, based on what it described as informed sources, that the Emirati authorities agreed with “Israel” to bring 7 Shin Bet officers to the Emirates in order to employ them with the Emirati security service under Emirati names to remove suspicion of their Zionist nationality.

The Algerian media has been warning for about 6 months about the suspicious role of the UAE and its efforts to try to undermine the stability of Algeria.

It highlighted that the Abu Dhabi authorities adopted this method of employing Shin Bet members in order not to arouse the discontent of the honorable owners of the country as well as other nationalities working in government departments, while empowering them with the status of advisors to hide the true nature of their operations.

The newspaper considered that “such suspicious cooperation raises concern, especially since visitors to the Emirates under any justification or goal, especially from Arab and Islamic nationalities that do not welcome Abu Dhabi’s positions towards central Arab and Islamic issues, most notably the Palestinian issue, will find themselves besieged and subject to Zionist security follow-up.” .

The same newspaper had previously reported weeks ago that the UAE “has moved to the utmost speed in making Algeria the target of its despicable conspiracies in an attempt to play with its security and stability, so it sought help from the warehouse that was offered to it and placed at its disposal the Moroccan terrorists who fought in the ranks of ISIS.”

She said, “5,750 members were recruited, including 1,150 officially active for Moroccan intelligence, while Tel Aviv, the alleged capital of the Zionist entity, is sponsoring the coordination process between the two subversive states, in order to target sensitive installations in southern Algeria.”

The same newspaper also spoke before, citing sources it described as reliable, that the UAE is exercising terrible pressure on Mauritania to join the caravan of normalizers and recognize “Israel.” It reported that the Mauritanian Defense Minister recently visited Israel, passing through the Emirate of Dubai, and resided there for some time, as part of Ashraf’s trip. “It is organized by Emirati officials.” She also talked about the Emirati role in pushing Tunisia for normalization, and supporting anti-Algerian parties in Libya in order to flood Algeria with hallucinogenic drugs.

In turn, the Algerian newspaper Al-Shorouk published a report some time ago stating the presence of “suspicious movements” by the defense attaché at the UAE embassy in Algeria, expecting a diplomatic crisis to erupt between Algeria and Abu Dhabi at any time.

The newspaper quoted what it said was a very reliable foreign diplomatic source, that the Emirati attaché, who holds the rank of colonel, stated to one of the diplomats, in the presence of his European counterparts, that in the event of a war breaking out between Algeria and Morocco, his country would stand with all its capabilities with the Alawite kingdom.

On the politicians’ side, Abdelkader Ben Qurayna, head of the National Construction Movement participating in the Algerian government, warned on several occasions of the Emirati role in the region following the recent Niger coup, indicating that he had information regarding Tunisia’s imminent normalization with Israel after an official in a Gulf country visited it. Recently, these are the statements that sparked widespread controversy and he later corrected them by saying that he did not mean sovereign normalization, but rather cultural normalization, but he kept the same accusations against the UAE, which he described as “a functional Gulf state, which is always behind the game of sowing differences and division in the region.”

The first news about the UAE appeared last June, when the Algerian Al-Nahar channel published information that turned out to be incorrect, saying that Algeria had asked the Emirati ambassador to leave the national territory within 48 hours to do so. She stated, “This decision came after the arrest of 4 Emirati spies who were communicating for the benefit of the Israeli Mossad, and the arrested spies also attempted to transmit secrets and information about the Algerian state.”

But this news turned out to be false, and the Algerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was quick to deny it and express its regret for these wrong actions. On the same day, President Abdelmadjid Tebboune decided to dismiss Communications Minister Mohamed Bouslimani. However, the continuation of articles strongly attacking the Emirati role showed that there is indeed concern about this country’s movements in the region, regardless of this news.

On the official level, relations between Algeria and Abu Dhabi appear normal, at least in diplomatic aspects. The last government communication was on the occasion of the appointment of Nadhir Arbawi as Prime Minister of Algeria. The Emirates News Agency reported that the Vice President of the State, in a phone call, congratulated Prime Minister Nadhir Al-Arbawi for the position on the occasion of assuming his new duties, expressing to him his sincere wishes for success in performing his new duties and responsibilities, and stressing the strength of the relations that unite his country with Algeria.
