Jeddah– Saudi-Sudanese Maritime Exercises “al-Falak 2” continued on Tuesday between Royal Saudi Naval Forces and Sudanese Naval Forces within the framework of carrying out joint drills between the two countries.

The Navies started last Thursday their joint exercise at King Faisal Naval Base, of the Saudi Western Fleet.

The Royal Saudi Western Fleet Commander, who is also the commanding officer of the exercise, Admiral Saeed al-Zahrani, welcomed the participating Sudanese Navy mission in the exercise, as the forces arrived at Jeddah Islamic Port.

The drills included storming and inspecting a ship to make sure that it does not smuggle weapons and landing on one of the islands carried out by speedboats with the participation of Royal Saudi Navy aircraft.

The naval forces stormed a speedboat to prevent it from smuggling arms and ammunition in a mock drill. They also landed on an island as part of the security drill.

Royal Saudi Navy aircraft took part in the exercise.
