10 Jan Demonstration of how to react to ambushes
EUTM Mali’s trainers ran a demonstration at Koulikoro Training Camp for students at the Malian officer cadet school “École Militaire Inter Armées”. The aim of the demonstration was to show combat drills for mounted and dismounted patrols particularly when reacting to ambushes. The first part showed how a mounted patrol would react to an improvised explosive device, represented by blue smoke. The second part showed how a dismounted patrol would withdraw when under fire from an attacking force.
