AMMAN, Jordan – An Allied Joint Force Command Naples Mobile Training Team (MTT) conducted a NATO counterinsurgency (COIN) lessons course in Jordan, May 2-5, 2016.

The JFC Naples officers familiarized the partner students with the latest NATO Allied Joint Doctrine and national COIN doctrine, including fundamental intelligence lessons and NATOs' approach to Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED). Several case studies were presented in order to underline fundamental NATO COIN lessons.
The training provided by JFC Naples was attended by 15 students from the Jordanian Armed Forces at the 30th King Al-Hussein Bin Ali Special Missions Brigade in Amman.
