Egypt’s Paratroopers and Commandos concluded joint drills to combat terrorism with US Special Forces,  the Egyptian military spokesman said in a statement on Thursday.

The SOF03 and SOF06 drills lasted for several days and took place on Egyptian paratroopers and commandos training grounds, the statement said.

The drills come “within the framework of the joint trainings plan implemented by the Armed Forces with sisterly and friendly countries to exchange military expertise,” the statement noted.

The training showed the “distinguished level and the field and combat skills the joint elements have reached and the extent of coordination and cooperation between the two sides,” the statement added.

The excercises  also "affirm the ability of the forces to carry out all tasks with accuracy and high efficiency.”

They are of a “great importance” in terms of exchanging and transferring experiences between the special forces of Egypt and the US, the statement affirmed.

The drills provide an “environment that is rich in mutual field and tactical experiences [and] that contributes to raising the level of combat preparedness of the participating forces and enhancing the combat and technical capabilities of both sides,” the statement added.
