KOSOVO, 21 -26 November, 2016. From November 21 – 26, KFOR will exercise
its Headquarters teams operational and tactical muscles in the planning and execution
of both Civil Disturbances and Natural Disaster simulations. KFOR, in close

will take part in a joint exercise culminating many weeks of coordinating, planning
and training. These professionally coordinated exercises will be conducted in Camp

Silver Sabre-2 targets two primary success measures. First is to test and measure the

Other elements will be exercised in a varety of scenarios as they pertain to exercise
- KP, in the Crowd Riot Control (CRC) role as a first responder;
- EULEX, in the CRC role as a second responder;
- KSF, in the chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defence (CBRN) role

The Silver Sabre Exercise is a phenomenal opportunity for KFOR to improve on their
ability to collaborate and coordinate with other pillar security providers in Kosovo.
