Jordan and UAE complete joint military exercise

The Jordanian and Emirati armies performed a joint military exercise yesterday in Jordan.

Jordan's King Abdullah II, the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for National Security in the UAE, Saif Sultan Al-Aryani, and the commander of the presidency in the UAE, and a number of senior Jordanian Armed Forces officers were all present at the training site, according to their official website.

The training exercise included firing live ammunition from various weapons and military vehicles in built up areas. There was also aerial support from both Jordanian and Emirati military aircrafts.

The goal behind the military training was for personnel from both countries to learn from one another and exchange military expertise as well as implement skills and manoeuvres that would improve the overall performance of each army.

There is currently a joint Arab-Western coalition against the Islamic State (ISIS) which currently controls large areas in both Syria and Iraq. Last June, members of ISIS declared that they had established a caliphate state in the areas under their control.
