Manama – Royal Saudi Arabian Navy and Royal Bahrain Navy Forces begin their joint maneuvers “Gulf Bridge 17” today, as part of the ongoing military cooperation and defense exchange experience between members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

The exercises aim to raise the combat capability, enhance the professional performance in all types of naval operations and the unification of the tactical concepts of command and control.

Early this month, Saudi Arabia’s navy had held exercises for ten days in the Gulf and the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

Gulf 17 is expected to end on Thursday.
