Egypt’s armed forces will receive on Thursday three new Rafale fighter jets as part of the second batch Egypt will receive from France.
Armed forces will celebrate the fighter jets arrival with a fly over Cairo, Giza and 6 October City. The new Rafale fighters will take part in the show.
A military source said the fighters represent progress in the armed forces’ ability to enhance security and stability in the Middle East.
Last February, France signed its first export contract for Rafale fighter jets, with Egypt agreeing to buy 24 of the warplanes.
