imgNaval and air forces of Egypt, Greece and Cyprus began a joint military drill on Monday along Egypt’s Mediterranean coast, the Egyptian army said.

The exercise, dubbed “Medusa 6,” came as part of the effort to boost the “distinguished relations” among the three countries, the army said in a statement.

It said that the drill will last for several days, without disclosing details.

The drill includes naval and aerial trainings aiming at developing combat capabilities of the participating forces to deal with common threats and enhance security in the Mediterranean region, it added.

Egypt, a major military power in the Arab world, annually holds several military exercises with Arab, African and Western allies to boost military cooperation and share military expertise.
