Djibouti: Eritrea occupying disputed territory since Qatar withdrew

"Qatari peacekeepers withdrew on June 12 and 13. On the same day there were Eritrean military movements on the mountain. They are now in full control of Dumeira Mountain and Dumeira Island," he told Reuters, referring to areas the neighbors both claim.
