Qatari Emiri Navy has conducted a joint exercise with the US Navy, with the participation of nine units and three private naval teams from both sides, the Ministry of Defence's Directorate of Moral Guidance said in a statement late Friday.

The statement said that the one-day military drill included exercises with artillery and naval missile in addition to medical supply and evacuation and monitoring of above-the-horizon targets with helicopters. The exercises came as part of Qatar's commitment to peace and security in the region and the fight against terrorism and extremism, the statement added.
The Ministry of Defence's Directorate of Moral Guidance on Wednesday announced that two US Navy vessels had arrived at Hamad Port to participate in a joint exercise with the Qatari Emiri Navy.
