Its a drill.

The UAE Armed Forces on Monday issued a cautionary message to the public about its upcoming military drill, which is set for November 3, 2017.

The military exercise is expected to be the Armed Force’s largest-ever public military drill that will highlight its role in safeguarding security in the UAE, according to the state news agency Wam.

The event will take place along Al Khan Corniche in the evening, although no specific time has been released yet.

Spectators will be able to witness first-hand the dedication and capabilities of the armed forces show.

The Sharjah show will emphasise the readiness, courage and professionalism of the armed forces to confront regional threats and all forms of challenges that may face the state and other Arab countries.

This is the second edition of the Union Fortress exercise, as the first military drill was held last March on Abu Dhabi Corniche.

The highlight of the free-to-attend event will be a live-action scenario of a joint exercise featuring every skilled component of the country’s armed forces to shed light on their harmony and integration.

The exercise will also witness live action scenarios, which will be shown on a giant screen placed on both sides of the main platform.
