Jeddah – All the countries sharing the Red-sea shores did joint-military exercise on Sunday in Saudi Arabia called as “The Red Wave One”, with the aim to strengthen brotherhood and protect the regional waters.
Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan, Djibouti, and Yemen, and some observers from Somalia also took part in the exercise to contribute to the unification of military concepts and raise the combat readiness of participating countries.
“Red Sea is a very important area in the world because it serves as an important economic route,” said Gen. Saqr Al-Harbi, commander of Saudi Arabia’s western fleet and head of the military maneuver.
It also aims at exchanging battlefield experience among the countries participating.
The training would continue until Thursday.
