Egyptian paratroopers in Pakistan to participate in 'Dawn of the East 1' joint drills
Published in Ahram Online on 27 - 10 - 2019

Egyptian paratroopers have arrived in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad to participate in a joint Egyptian-Pakistani training called Fajr Al-Sharq 1 (“Dawn of the East 1”).
The drills are expected to last for two weeks and include the Egyptian, Pakistani, and Jordanian armed forces, with a number of other countries as observers.
A coordination conference was held between the participating forces to unify concepts and achieve integration and familiarity between the implementing elements, to contribute to the standardisation of operational concepts and coordinate efforts, to carry out joint team work accurately and efficiently.
The drills include the implementation of many activities and events and typical and non-typical shooting, in addition to training in counter-terrorism.
The training represents a quantum leap for the military relations between Egypt and Pakistan, as it is the first of its kind.
It aims at providing a rich environment with mutual field and tactical experiences to raise the level of preparedness and combat readiness of the participating forces and enhance the combat and technical capabilities of both sides.
The training is part of a series of joint drills carried out by the Egyptian armed forces with many brotherly and friendly countries, to transfer and exchange experiences and support security and stability efforts.
