This joint security exercise is the first of its kind in the Gulf region where field training will be conducted on the terrorist risks facing the region. The exercise was decided by the GCC ministries of interior during the last GCC meeting, during which Bahrain was chosen to host the first edition of the anti-terror exercise.

Security forces from various GCC countries will engage in the security exercise, which aims at enhancing the efficiency of security forces, increasing their ability to combat terrorist attacks and exchanging expertise.

All risks facing the GCC countries will be taken into consideration and there will be simulation of security threats by terrorist groups.
