Morocco participates in marine training Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia has launched a large-scale marineoefening Tuesday for Arab countries.

Under the name Shield1 is the training held with different Islamic countries. Morocco also is of the party. The courses are held in the waters of the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz. Countries participating in the war against the Shiite Houthi's in Yemen take part in Shield1 anyway. Does Morocco with about six fighter jets take part in this fight.

Shield1 can be seen as answer by the Saudi authorities on the marineoefening of Iran in the Gulf, at the end of september last year. For Morocco, it is an excellent opportunity to test new defence equipment such as some frigates.
