BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Egyptian Army outperformed the Turkish and Israeli armies in the ranking of Global Fire Power, as it ranked first as the strongest army in the Middle East and North Africa for this year.

The Egyptian Army’s reached the top ranking after Turkish military was rated the most powerful force in all of the Middle East and North Africa in 2019.

The strength of the Egyptian Army was distinguished by the strength of its land, sea, and air forces in the number of missile systems and other equipment, as Egypt has worked during the recent period to significantly develop the strength of its army.

The Egyptian army is likely to increase its rankings next year, if it continues to train its forces and equip its army with the strongest military equipment.

Most recently, the Egyptian Army has increased its naval strength by acquiring new submarines from Germany and a new frigate from Italy.
