“About 3,000 US military personnel — representing US Central Command headquarters and its components — and military representatives from more than a dozen other nations will support the exercise,” the release, published on Monday, said.
The Eagle Resolve exercise is “the premier US multilateral exercise within the Arabian Peninsula,” the CENTOM said.
The exercise started on March 8 and will last until March 31. Its goal is to stimulate multinational headquarters operations and tactical demonstrations of land, maritime, and air forces from several nations, according to the CENTCOM.
The Gulf Cooperation Council states Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates first conducted the Eagle Resolve exercise together with the United States in Tampa, Florida in 1999.
