The airspace of the Central African Republic is threatened from the side of the northern region. For the second time in a month, an air incursion by an unidentified military aircraft flew over the Sido in the north of the country, near the border with Chad.
Recall that at the beginning of June an unidentified military aircraft flew over the positions of the Central African armed forces at low attitude at the level of the locality of Moyenne Sido in the Ouham prefecture, in the Central African Republic.
The Central African minister of defense, Rameaux Claude Bireau, strongly condemned the overflight of a military aircraft over the positions of the Central African Armed Forces (FACA) in Moyenne Sido.
In a press release, the Minister of Defense of the Central African Republic quoted that « the Central African Republic considers the overflight of this hostile military aircraft, as an act of aggression that violates our sovereignty, and threatens the security of the citizen ».
The same situation is repeated this Friday, June 17, a helicopter flew over the territory of the Central African Republic, at the level of the locality of Moyenne Sido, then flew to Chad. The helicopter landed in Sido, in Chad.
The illegal overflight of the Central African airspace in the Ouham prefecture has often been frequent. Security and local sources have reported similar cases of unidentified military aircraft flying over the Central African border with Chad.
Local residents expressed their fears about the consequences of the penetration of the country’s air borders and the possibility of insurgents from illegal armed groups infiltrating the Central African border.
