From November 9 and 13, the Special Operations Departments of the Greek and Egyptian military conducted joint exercises at the headquarters of the Greek Special Forces Training Center (KEED) in Nea Peramos to the west of Athens.
The co-training included operational diving subjects in the marine environment and shoreline procedures, as well as Rapid Reaction Combat Shots (BMTA) day and night. Small-scale amphibious exercise was also performed.
Simultaneously with the above activities in Greece, a Greek delegation consisting of personnel of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces of all three Branches, was trained in the free fall simulator (wind tunnel) owned by the Egyptian Special Forces, gaining significant experience in this field.
These joint trainings, which were conducted under the Military Cooperation Program between the two countries for the current year, aim to upgrade the level of cooperation and interoperability between the participants.
They were coordinated by the Greek military with the aim of upgrading the operational capabilities and the exchange of experiences of the Special Operations Forces of Greece with friends and allied countries.
In addition, they demonstrated the excellent level of cooperation between the Armed Forces of the two countries, which is confirmed through intensive joint activities and joint training, which contribute to the consolidation of a climate of security and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.
