President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi has inaugurated Berenice military base, located south of Red Sea, on Wednesday. The inauguration witnessed the attendance of Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohamed bin Zayed, Saudi Deputy Minister of Defence Khalid bin Salman, and Prime Minister of Bulgaria Boyko Borissov.
Berenice is considered the largest military base in the Red Sea, the largest naval base in the Middle East and North Africa, and the second of its kind in Egypt.
"Bernice military base is one of a series of successes by the Egyptian Armed Forces," the presidency spokesperson said. "It comes to develop and modernise the Armed Forces as part of Egypt Vision 2030".
It was established within a few months and will strengthen the international classification of the Egyptian army. The base is aimed to protect the southern entrance of the Red Sea, securing navigation in the waterway that leads to the Suez Canal and associated economic zones.
It is located on the Red Sea coast near the southern border of Egypt. Built on 150,000 feddan area, it includes naval and air bases, a hospital, administrative buildings, and training areas for all weapon types. The project also includes Berenice International Airport and a seawater desalination plant.
In 2017, Egypt inaugurated its first military base "Mohamed Naguib" in Matrouh governorate, the largest in the Middle East.
