KFOR EOD TEAMS SUPPORT KOSOVO POLICE
28th January 2015. Yesterday, a demolition operation was conducted by KFOR Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams together with the Kosovo Police EOD Unit at the KP demolition Range on Mt. Goles in Lipljan/Lipjani municipality.
The explosive ordnance disposal operations lasted a few hours during the day and all the planned activities were successfully accomplished. The operation resulted in the destruction of several weapons and ammunition seized by KP.
Before the beginning of the demolition operation, KP members established a cordon to secure the area of the disposal, while a KFOR medical team was present to perform medical support to the units involved.
The KFOR´s support activity to Kosovo Police was provided in order to contribute to a safe and secure environment in Kosovo. It was also an opportunity to increase the collaboration regarding weapons and ammunitions disposal between KP and KFOR EOD teams and to share demolition techniques.
EOD and Improvised Explosive Device Disposal (IEDD) teams are valuable KFOR assets; their main mission is to disarm Unexploded Ordnance and to support KP and Kosovo Security Force (KSF) throughout Kosovo in order to ensure a safe environment for all the people of Kosovo.
