CAIRO – 2 November 2019: Egyptian and the United Arab Emirates ended on Saturday month-long military drills in combat named “Night Eagles” as part of a series of joint military drills between the two countries, said Egyptian army spokesperson Tamer al-Refaie.
Al-Refaie said that the latest drills include aiding the tactics of the main forces during the different stages of operations management. The spokesperson revealed that the drills included military activities such as setting ambushes, organizing rescue operations, and planning land and aerial scouting.
