U.S. and Estonian military shot down training drones with a stryker, an armoured fighting vehicle, as part of NATO’s annual Saber Strike military drills on Thursday.
U.S. Army Commander of the 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, Maj.-Gen.Gregory J. Brady, said the exercise built readiness and contributes to NATO’s Article 5 requirement, which states that an attack on one member of the alliance is viewed as an attack on all.
Meanwhile, U.S. and Romanian forces also conducted joint military drills in Smârdan, Romania on Thursday. Dubbed “Justice Eagle,” the live-fire exercise saw tanks and infantry from both countries test their capabilities.
Organizers say the biannual exercise is not related to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine — Romania’s eastern neighbour.
On Thursday, Russia’s war in Ukraine entered its third week with none of its stated objectives reached, despite thousands of people killed and more than two million fleeing the country.
