CAIRO - 20 August 2019: The Defense Ministry published a video clip for Egyptian paratroopers while training ahead of their participation in the joint military drill, dubbed "Defenders of Friendship 4" in Russia.



Members of the Armed Forces left for Russia on Tuesday to participate in the joint military drills, in which paratroopers from Russia and Belarus will take part as well. The drills are set for August 19-29.

The drill includes many activities, topped by the implementation of landing operations of personnel, equipment and vehicles.

Egypt and Russia have been stepping up military cooperation in recent years. In 2015, Russia and Egypt held a joint naval exercise called "Friendship Bridge 2015", off the coast of Alexandria, including supply and communication exercises, search operations, and defense and live-firing exercises.

In October 2016, the two nations' airborne forces held the "Defenders of Friendship-2016," exercise in Egypt close to Alamein, a coastal city 100 miles west of Alexandria.
