The activities of the joint Egyptian-Pakistani training (Raad - 1) were concluded. The joint military exercises kicked off on Monday 26 February with the participation of military personnel from the Egyptian Parachute and Thunderbolt Forces and the Pakistani Special Forces.

The exercise’s activities continued over several days in the combat training fields led by the Paratroopers Forces in the Arab Republic of Egypt, the Egyptian Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

The final phase included the implementation of a practical statement to storm a border village and clear it of armed terrorist elements through the implementation of free-jumping and air strikes for members of the Special Forces from both sides. It demonstrated the extent of their field skills and high combat capabilities that enable them to carry out tasks of an atypical nature under various conditions.
