Joint Gulf force the Peninsula Shield began a 17-day exercise in Kuwait on Sunday as reported by Qatar Chronicle. The drills are aimed at "activating the concept of joint defence... and implementing the unified defence strategy of the Gulf Cooperation Council states," Brigadier Abdulaziz al-Rayes, was cited as saying by the kuwaiti news agency KUNA as saying. The Peninsula Shield force was formed by the six GCC member states -- Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates -- in 1982 as a 5,000-strong force but has since expanded to more than 30,000 troops.
