AFL PERSONNEL RECIEVE PEACE SUPPORT OPERATIONS TRAINING

As part of the capacity building of personnel of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), the Office of United Kingdom Short Term Training Team from the British Armed Forces, has provided a short-term training to some personnel of the AFL in United Nations Peace Support Operations Specialist Skills from 04-29 March 2024 at Camp Sandee Ware.

 

This 4-week training was intensive and timely. It captured modules in IED Threats and Recovery, Infantry Skills, Tactics and Team Medical Training for AFL’s personnel in United Nations Peace Support Operations. The training brought together a total of 91 soldiers from units across the AFL.

 

Speaking at the occasion, Brig Gen Davidson F Forleh, Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Liberia, hailed the collaboration between the British and Liberian Governments and thanked the British Ambassador, H.E. Neil Bradley for the training provided to the AFL. The Chief of Staff said he was also honored to be at the first graduation exercise under his leadership, and he asked the graduates to take seriously what they have learned because they will use such skills now and in future United Nations Missions.

Stressing the logistical constraints faced by the AFL, the Chief of Staff however assured the graduates that there will be more trainings and he will lobby and negotiate with our counterparts for more trainings because there are lots of internal security issues facing West Africa which our troops must be prepared to handle.

 

The Chief of Staff emphasized the formation of a robust Quick Reaction Force which will be on a stand-by with the ability to respond and take siege of internal security matters such as Demonstrations, Raid, Rioting, Road Block, Crowd Dispersal, etc.  

 

Also speaking at the graduation ceremony, the British Ambassador, H.E. Neil Bradley, said the training was very important for the AFL and he wished to do more to assist in training and helping the AFL in other areas.
