Thursday, 18.11.2021 | Training
Collective training of the Force Protection platoon from the Training Command for deployment in the UN peacekeeping operation in Lebanon is ongoing at the „Borovac” range and in the “South” base.
The training is part of several-month preparations of the unit personnel in order to become fully trained for conducting assigned tasks in the peacekeeping operation.
During this part of preparations, force protection platoon works in conditions similar to those in the mission, and scenarios it uses are fully adjusted to situations it can face during conducting tasks in the area of operation. Program includes contents from tactical and physical training and topics from international humanitarian law, with focus on conducting tasks during base security.
In the final part of preparations, next month, force protection platoon will have a tactical exercise evaluating the training of the unit to be deployed in this mission.
Serbian Armed Forces have deployed force protection platoon in the UN mission in Lebanon since 2014. Primary task of our unit, which is located within the Italian contingent, is securing the UN forces base.
