Units of the Egyptian and Pakistani air defence forces on Sunday continued their ‘Sky Protectors-1’ joint military exercise, hosted by Egypt.

The first-of-its-kind drill comes as part of military cooperation between Egypt and Pakistan.

The activities included a pre-training phase to achieve integration between the participating forces by carrying out a set of theoretical and practical lectures to review modern and advanced air defence systems and organising an exhibition of the participating weapons and air defence equipment.

The Commander of the Egyptian Air Defence Forces and Director General of the Pakistani Joint Staff Mohammad Haider attended the activities.

The participating forces from both sides also carried out joint tactical exercises, which revealed the capability of the joint naval forces to perform their tasks efficiently and rapidly.

The training is being held to exchange expertise between the two countries in the field of air defence in light of the spread of advanced aerial attack weapons.
