Army spokesman Tamer El-Refai said in an online statement that Egyptian forces have departed for the two countries to take part in ground, air and naval military exercises, which will take place over several days.

The drills aim to “unify the concepts of combat and the sharing of expertise and training in the naval and air forces.”

“This comes in the framework of the Armed Forces’ plan for joint drills with brotherly countries in different fields... to support peace and stability in the region,” the statement read.
