The Bright Star multinational military drill was launched in 1980 as part of the US-brokered peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. It has been hosted by Egypt in cooperation with the US every two years.

The drill, originally scheduled for September 2020, was suspended due to the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
