US forces in Djibouti have accused nearby Chinese troops of harassing pilots and even trying to sneak into their base
Since the U.S. and Chinese militaries became neighbors in the small African country of Djibouti, they haven’t been getting along very well.
Rear Adm. Heidi Berg, the director of intelligence at the US Africa Command, has accused the Chinese military of “irresponsible actions,” telling reporters recently that Chinese forces at a nearby base have been harassing U.S. forces at the neighboring Camp Lemonnier base.
Berg, from Business Insider:
- U.S. military pilots in the Pacific are being targeted with lasers after similar incidents in Africa
- Iran shot down a U.S. drone and said it’s ‘ready for war’
- Fired Marine one-star general was ‘abusive, bullying, toxic, abrasive, and aggressive’
- Drone footage captures images of a derailed train that was carrying bombs, grenades, and vegetable oil
- The Army’s 3rd Cavalry Regiment earned 60 combat badges on a deployment that saw it fire 5,000 howitzer rounds at ISIS fighters
