Hellenic Air Force units arrived in Egypt on Friday to participate in the joint Egyptian-Greek military exercise “Horus 2015,” an Egyptian armed official spokesperson reported on Saturday.

In a short statement published on his official Facebook page, Brigadier General Mohamed Samir stated that the joint Egyptian-Greek air force exercise will last for several days.

Last week, Egyptian, Greek and Cypriot naval forces conducted a joint practice drill in the Mediterranean.

In April, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi visited Cyprus for a summit with the leaders of Cyprus and Greece, agreeing to step up the fight against terrorism in the region.
