Moving the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet from Bahrain to Qatar

Military authorities of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet have expressed concern over recent popular development in early 2017 and increasing popular protests against human rights violation by Al-Khalifa regime. Kevin Dungan, Fifth Fleet commander, announced his concern to the Pentagon.

As US military authorities stationed in the Persian Gulf have expressed concern over increasing tension between Al-Khalifah and the public on popular demands, and the possibility that Bahraini rebels retaliate against US military forces, the Pentagon re-raised the plan to move its fifth fleet to Qatar. Officials of US Department of Defense put on their agenda for further investigations.

“Washington is highly looking at plans to move its Fifth Fleet away from Bahrain,” the Times says, quoting an informed source. Many believe that what is happening in Bahrain is not in the interest of the USA.

It is worth mentioning that the idea of relocating the fleet has been raised since 2011, with the start of Bahrain’s uprising known as Islamic Awakening. Now these concerns have become a potential threat to the United States, as far as it is willing to immediate investigation on the plan and pay the financial exorbitant fees of the great plan.

Qatar now hosts the United States Central Command (CENT-COM) in al Adidyah district Qatar. The CENT-COM area of responsibility includes countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia.
