Today, the combat teams have engaged the targets using the “Humvee” combat vehicles’ machine guns, then light machine guns, sniper and long-range rifles, achieving excellent results.
While expressing satisfaction with the excellent skills the soldiers and officers have shown in efficient and rapid neutralization of targets at medium and long-range distances, their attitude to assignments and high morale, Chief of the General Staff has pointed out that members of SAF special operations forces are expected to be prepared at a moment’s notice to be first responders to threats to security of the state and citizens, and to perform any task assigned to them by the state and military leadership.
