2016: KFOR MINE CLEARING ACTIVITIES


In 2016, KFOR mine clearing activities have resulted in the removal and disposal of 267 pieces of dangerous ordnance. Over the past year, both KFOR and International Civil Presences (ICP) have greatly enhanced the explosive ordnance detection and removal capability within the KSF.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Humanitarian Demining (HD) and Mine Risk Education all continue to be primary initiatives and core educational requirements within KFOR. Local EOD units have constructed content and training requirements to help scale these safety and detection measures with Kosovo Police for the enablement of further growth in the civilian communities of Kosovo. These capabilities are also critical to the Freedom of Movement for KFOR soldiers as they perform their duties both on and off of their installations.

During the last seventeen years of cooperation and collaborated work between KFOR and KSF, many dangerous areas have been demined and as result, hundreds of deaths and/or injuries have been avoided.
