Egyptian and Spanish naval forces have conducted a joint naval exercise in the Red Sea.

The Egyptian frigate “Suez” and the Spanish frigate "Santa Maria" took part in the war game hosted by Berenice Military Base in the Southern Fleet’s zone.

The training reflected the high competitiveness and fighting capabilities, as well as the combating readiness of the Egyptian naval troops.

The exercise featured air defense drills against hostile aerial targets, along with maritime attack deterrence formations and a re-supply drill.

Berenice is the largest military base in the Red Sea, the Middle East and North Africa and the second of its kind in Egypt.
