    Egypt says discussed 'major military manoeuvre' in Saudi Arabia
    CAIRO

    (Reuters) - Egypt and Saudi Arabia have discussed holding a "major military manoeuvre" in Saudi Arabia with other Gulf states, the Egyptian presidency said, after the two countries discussed the progress of a Saudi-led campaign against Shi'ite militias in neighbouring Yemen.

    Egyptian naval and air forces are already participating in the campaign against Houthi militias in Yemen, and Cairo has said it would supply ground forces "if necessary". Earlier on Tuesday, it denied reports that it had already sent troops to Yemen.

    Egypt said the topic of manoeuvres in the Saudi kingdom was discussed during a meeting between Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Saudi Defense Minister Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Cairo on Tuesday.

    "It was agreed to form a joint military committee to discuss the implementation of a major strategic manoeuvre in the territory of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with the participation of a joint Arab force which includes troops from Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states," the Presidency statement said.

    It said the security of the Gulf region and the Red Sea was a "red line" for Cairo. The statement gave no timings or details of what the manoeuvres would entail.

    The meeting also discussed the latest developments in the Yemen campaign, the statement said.

    Without actual infantry no ground can be held in Yemen.
    Any amount of aerial bombardment can substitute to infantry.

    So if Egyptians don't get involved, then its zero sum

    We must stand with our brothers and allies whatever were the consequences, but in the same time we don't want a sectarian war in the region while other countries like Israel is building its military via acquiring the top notch of the American high tech weapons and technology, and as we know full well that USA used to give them the blind support. It's more important to unite in a long-term defense industry program, ToT programs, and getting the best technology from other suppliers as USA isn't a fully trusted ally and will always put limitations and conditions to send its weapons.

    I beleive u guys need pak help how to deal with these militants u can learn from us quick what we have learned with 12 yrs of trial and errors .

    Best bet will be SF mixed with hadi forces supported with jets and helis yes drones too .dont need to expose regular troops this will work plus it should be limited with a time frame must must have an exit plan .

    well we are in this situation from 2011 so we gained a lot of experience on how to deal with them , also the militants in Sinai are using different tactics they are similar to the one using hamas and the FSA , and there was a visit to pak in the last weeks but it was probably about weapons developing or future projects

    It's likely that Pakistan might join these exercises, Al Samsam-5 has concluded.
