TAIZ, Sept. 22 (YPA) -The UAE occupation has completed the construction of the Mocha military airport, near the Bab al-Mandab Strait, west of Taiz Governorate, Pro-UAE media reported on Wednesday.
Media outlets affiliated with the UAE-backed militia have affirmed that the construction of Mocha airport has been completed.
According to media sources, the airport has a runway with a length of 2.4 km, and the UAE began building it within the port of Mocha in early 2019.

In his Twitter account, Shamsan claimed on that Mocha Airport will be a landing strip for planes carrying the people of Taiz arriving from all corners of the earth.
