Egyptian-Turkish naval exercise

by info live tv on Jan 8, 2012

The Turkish and Egyptian armies concluded one of the biggest military exercises held in the region in recent months. Dozens of Turkish and Egyptian vessels took part in the exercise, as well as F-16 jets and helicopters. The forces simulated a frontal clash between naval forces, exercised methods of defense in high seas, facing hostile vessels and firing live ammunition at aircraft. Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan discussed the importance of his country's navy several months ago. Erdogan, who visited Egypt in September, was asked if Turkey's plan to send warships to escort Turkish vessels headed to Gaza could lead to a military clash.
