The UAE’s armed forces recently conducted military drills with the US Marines as part of a series of joint exercises, the country’s Ministry of Defence has said.

The ministry on Wednesday tweeted an action-packed video that showed snippets of the UAE-US joint military training. Some were held in the desert, while others featured staged scenarios that involved snipers, drones, and armoured vehicles zipping through a mock neighbourhood. Forces were also seen wearing face masks during the training.

The UAE’s Ministry of Defence said among the teams that took part in the military training were the land forces, Presidential Guards, and the US Marine Corps.

These joint exercises are part of efforts to strengthen the UAE’s military ties with the US and facilitate an exchange of expertise between the two countries, the ministry said.

The defence ministry added that the training as also designed to develop forces’ abilities to secure important locations and improve their cooperation with air support. Sessions were also conducted on usinh helicopters for evacuation.

In March last year, the UAE and the US carried out a military training programme called 20 Native Fury.
