Units from the Saudi Armed Forces continue their participation in the Eager Lion 2024 exercise held in Jordan. In furtherance of the joint action concept, the Saudi Armed Forces participating in the exercise carried out field maneuvers alongside troops from 32 countries.

Spanning from 12-23 May 2024, the exercise encompasses various locations across Jordan, including northern, central, and southern regions.

The field exercises involved joint targeting operations, missile air defense, and counter-terrorism operations in populated areas, in addition to hostage-liberation operations, defense and attack operations with vehicles and tanks, cyber operations, information operations, and strategic communications, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

The exercise aims to exchange experiences and train on planning and implementing joint and missile defense operations, in addition to carrying out anti-terrorism and maritime security operations to confront regional threats. It also intends to train the participating forces on border security operations and develop the capabilities of military units to confront and manage crises.

In another development, Commander of the Joint Forces and Deputy Chief of the Saudi General Staff, First Lieutenant General Mutlaq bin Salem Al-Azima, received the Chief of the General Staff of the Yemeni Armed Forces, Lieutenant General Sagheer Hammoud Aziz, in his office at the Joint Forces Command on Sunday.

The visit is part of ongoing coordination and continuous support from the coalition countries, led by the Kingdom, to achieve the desired goals and aspirations of the Yemeni people and their legitimate leadership. It also reflects the Kingdom's role in achieving security and stability in the sisterly Republic of Yemen.
