The military chiefs of staff from Muslim nations participating in a alliance to fight terrorism will meet in the Saudi capital on Sunday, the state-run news agency reported.

The meeting, considered the first of its kind, aims to coordinate efforts among the 34 Muslim countries involved in the alliance.

The counter-terrorism Islamic force was announced in December by Saudi Defense minister Prince Mohammed bin Salman in a bid to establish a unified Muslim body to fight terrorism.

The coalition started through the establishment of a joint operations center in Riyadh.
