PRISTINA - The NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) has concluded an Operational Rehearsal Training Exercise (OPREH Level II) with a live exercise on the Gjakova/ Đakovica air field.
Training has featured crowd and riot control and freedom of movement activities, as well as security operations.
OPREH Level II is a routine exercise in support to our KFOR mission. It takes place every two years in Kosovo. The drill has involved hundreds of troops from NATO countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Romania, Turkey, and the United Kingdom) operating alongside KFOR units, as part of KFOR's Operational Reserve Force.
Its aim is to ensure that NATO troops maintain the highest level of readiness in support to KFOR activities.
In the next days, all additional forces will depart Kosovo and return to their respective home countries.
KFOR continues to implement its mission to guarantee a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement for all communities living in Kosovo, as per the mandate derived from the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999.
