 The “Abdullah 8” exercises between the Saudi Western Sea Fleet and Jordan, which kicked off on July 24 and ended Friday, were carried out by the Royal Saudi Navy.

The Saudi Defense Ministry said the mock war games were aimed at improving the capacity of participating units to respond quickly to terrorist acts, share counter-terrorism experiences and deal with explosives and blind munitions.

Additionally, the exercises aim at rising the efficiency and combat readiness of the participating forces from both sides, and unifying operational concepts between them in the crucial stages of preparation, planning and implementation.

Saudi Commander of the Western Fleet Rear Admiral Yahya bin Mohammed Al-Asiri said that the maneuvers are part of joint drills between the two countries, which involve several training events.

The drills aim to strengthen relations between the two countries in the field of mixed military training and to contribute to the development and upgrading of the combat readiness of the Royal Saudi Naval Security Units and Jordan’s special operations, Asiri added.
