Turkey and Saudi Arabia began joint air exercises, which would last for five days, the Turkish military said. The drills are within the framework of cooperation and military training between the two countries.

They come three days after Ankara announced that Saudi jets would be placed at Turkey’s Incirlik base in order to fight Daesh.

Riyadh is also conducting ground and air exercises with Egypt and Jordan near the Iraqi border. Earlier, both Turkey and Saudi Arabia considered deploying ground troops in Syria to battle Daesh, but only as part of the US-led coalition.
