Egyptian air forces began on Sunday joint military exercises with their Kuwaiti counterparts in Egyptian airspace, Egypt's army said on Sunday.

The drills aim to "bolster joint air capabilities using air forces from the two sides and strengthen military cooperation," the army spokesman said in a statement. 

The exercise involved carrying out offensive and defensive sorties and conducting aerial reconnaissance and flight formations.

The last round of the joint Egyptian-Kuwaiti military exercise Yarmouk was held in April 2016 in Kuwait.
