Egyptian and Saudi Arabian armed forces are conducting a joint military training, dubbed Tabuk-5, which is expected to continue for several days in Saudi Arabia.

The training comes within the framework of a joint training plan between friendly and brotherly countries to support military cooperation in various fields.

The commander of the Egyptian force participating in the drill explained the importance of training in unifying concepts and exchanging experiences as it contributes to raising the rates of combat performance, stressing his confidence in the readiness of the participating elements to train on planning and managing joint tasks professionally and efficiently.

Furthermore, the commander of the north-west region of Saudi Arabia stressed that the training values the relations of military cooperation between the two brotherly countries and the experience of the participating elements working to implement all tasks with the highest degree of professionalism.

The Tabuk 5 military drill is one of the largest joint exercises between the two countries in terms of the size of the participating forces and the diversity of training activities. The training confirms the depth of military cooperative relations and the growing fruitful partnership between the Egyptian and Saudi Armed Forces in order to coordinate efforts to face common challenges in the region.

Additionally, the Egyptian navy and US forces carried out a cross-border naval exercise in the Red Sea with the participation of the Egyptian frigate ‘Alexandria’ and the two destroyers ‘USS COLE’ and ‘USS JANSON DUNHAM.’

The exercises involved a range of different naval combat activities, including situational image analysis (surface, air, subsurface, and electronic).

They also included transportation exercises, training on maritime security procedures in the Red Sea, countering atypical maritime threats, as well as an exercise to protect ships carrying important cargo.

The exercises demonstrated the ability of the joint naval units to carry out their tasks accurately and efficiently to maintain the security and freedom of navigation in the Red Sea and are an affirmation of the strategic partnership and bilateral relations between the Egyptian Armed Forces and their US counterpart.
