AMMAN, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan – Allied Joint Force Command Naples recently conducted an Asymmetric Warfare-Counter-Terrorism Mobile Training Team (AW-CT MTT) with the Jordanian Armed Forces in Amman on Oct. 27.
The JFC Naples team shared NATO doctrine and a large variety of cases studies related to AW-CT with 18 Jordanian officers. The MTT presented the terrorist action within its general subversive context. The 360-degree holistic approach to this course (from strategic to tactical, operations in built-up areas, maritime and desert environments) was adopted to give the opportunity to deliver the most precise picture of terrorism trends. The Jordanian students were able to make a considerable contribution to the course by recounting their personal experiences, thus significantly enhancing the course.
Colonel Ziad Negresh, the Jordanian Special Forces Group Deputy Commander, chaired the closing ceremony and certificate presentation. During his closing remarks, he expressed his gratitude to JFC Naples and the CT MTT for its involvement and the lessons provided.
Jordan is an active NATO partner country and a member of the Mediterranean Dialogue Framework since 1995. It currently participates in numerous NATO initiatives including various courses at NATO Centres of Excellences, NATO School Oberammergau, the NATO Defense College, Senior Executive NATO courses and other Key Leader Engagements.
JFC Naples Mobile Training Teams are comprised of subject matter experts from throughout the Headquarters and are coordinated by the J9 Division Military Partnership Branch to assist Partner Nations in achieving their established Partnership Goals. MTTs also generate partnering activity that is in-line with NATO’s Military Committee’s Direction and Guidance while it supports NATO’s broader aims to help build the trust and understanding that will lead to better cooperation in the region while increasing military interoperability for future NATO missions.
