Egypt's Army Chief of Staff Mahmoud Hegazi headed to Greece on Wednesday along with a military delegation to attend a joint military exercise between Egypt and Greece’s armed forces.

Egypt's air and naval forces have departed for Greece to participate in joint Egyptian-Greek military drills between 8 and 12 December.

The exercise, named “Medusa 2016”, includes several activities that involve planning and administering joint naval operations and operating day and night sailing formations, maritime interception operations and inspecting suspicious ships, as well as search and rescue procedures.

Egypt has carried out 30 joint military exercises in 2016 with 20 Arab and African countries, as well as European countries including France and Russia.
