Kénitra, Morocco - A multinational J3 Enduring Operations Branch (EOB) team from Allied Joint Force Command Naples led a Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (C-IED) Mobile Training Team (MTT) course in Kénitra, Morocco from 08 to 10 February 2022.

Organized in close cooperation with Moroccan Royal Armed Forces, the program focused on the IED threat worldwide and C-IED doctrine within NATO. The course consisted of IED and C-IED awareness briefings, different cases studies focused on the Tactical and Operational levels and the group discussed Technical, Tactical Procedures (TTPs). Open and frank discussions allowed a sharing of experiences and relevant exchanges between all participants and the NATO experts.

The CIED MTT training package is designed to cover topics from tactical to operational levels, and provides an introduction on the Attack the Network (AtN) pillar of C-IED doctrine

said Major Nicolas Licheron MTT leader.

Royal Armed Forces attendees, mainly from the Army Emergency and Rescue Unit, were particularly interested in the NATO C-IED approach and doctrine. In particular, they were interested in developing their response capabilities to an IED incident as well as developing their exploitation processes currently directed by the National Security.

"Challenging and evolving threats such as UAS as well as the C-IED education and sharing of experience is the goal of MTTs such as this with our partners and is a welcome challenge for our JFCNP team.", said Maj Licheron.

The MTT constitutes an effective and reliable activity to support Morocco, both in military dialogue and consultation, in its development of military capabilities.
