Egyptian soldiers participate in 7th Eager Lion Military Drill

This week more than 7,000 soldiers from 22 countries including Egypt flew to Jordan for the 7th Eager Lion international drill.

Egypt is always keen to participate in joint military training programs across the world. And this year’s participation is seen by observers, as part of President Abdel Fattah el Sisi’s plan to re-arm and strengthen one of Africa’s strongest armies.
