Egypt, Jordan conduct "Aqaba 3" joint military exercises

Elements of the Jordanian army have arrived in Egypt to join the military exercises "Aqaba 3" which run for several days this month, according to a statement by the Egyptian Armed Forces.

Elements of the land formations in the southern military zone, the Egyptian fleet, shock troops and paratroopers along with the Naval and Air forces will join the exercises.

The war games are aimed at boosting relations between the armies of both countries and training the troops to conduct joint planning to implement various tasks using available resources, in addition to training them to face current security threats and possible future ones. 

The two countries held a similar drill last year, with the participation of elite military units from the two armies.
