Saudi conducts military exercises with 20 states


Armed forces from 20 countries have begun maneuvers in northeastern Saudi Arabia, described by the Saudi media as one of the world's biggest military exercises.

Troops from Pakistan, Malaysia, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan and Sudan are among those participating in the "Thunder of the North" exercise, which began on Saturday.

The military exercise involves all three forces including ground, air and naval.

Forces from the other five Gulf Arab states are also taking part in one of the world's most important military exercises, which aims to improve training on responding to the threats posed by "terrorist groups".
