Egyptian and Bahraini naval and air troops concluded the Hamad 3 joint drills on Monday.  

The two countries' naval forces carried out reconnaissance operations against certain targets and trained to deal with high efficiency with naval targets in addition to avoiding mines and confronting attacks at ports.

The troops used live ammunition during the exercises, which took place in Bahrain.

Air forces were trained to use modern techniques in attacking targets in addition to making good preparations ahead of taking off.

Bahrain's Assistant Chief of Staff for Human Resources Major General Sheikh Ali bin Rashid Al-Khalifa said his country is looking forward to exchanging military expertise with Egypt, hoping that more joint drills will be held in the coming years.

He lauded the distinguished performance of the forces that took part in the exercises.
