Greece sends Patriot system to Saudi Arabia

The Greek Chief of Staff, Konstantinos Floros, announced that his country would send a Patriot missile system to Saudi Arabia, coinciding with the United States’ withdrawal of missile systems, equipment and soldiers from the Kingdom.

The Greek Chief of Staff published, through his Twitter account, pictures of the farewell ceremony of the system and limited Greek forces affiliated with the 114th Combat Wing, apparently operating them.

“The mission of the system sent to Saudi Arabia will work to maintain peace and stability, especially in the Middle East and the eastern Mediterranean,” Floros said.

Greece provides Saudi Arabia with the Patriot system on loan under an agreement signed between the two countries last April.

And earlier, the US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, directed the US Army Central Command, which oversees the region, to withdraw these equipment and elements, starting from the summer.

Yesterday, Tuesday, the Saudi Cabinet approved the establishment of the General Authority for Defense Development, whose mission is research and development in the fields of technology and defense systems.
