Poachers In Egypt

Posted on March 18, 2019

The ‘Poachers’, as they are known, are taking part in Exercise ‘AHMOSE’ 1 which is involving more than 150 British military personnel. The exercise began earlier this month and is putting soldiers through their paces in a variety of scenarios including urban operations, close quarter battle and live firing. The exercise will culminate in a company live fire attack, involving over 100 infantry soldiers supported by mortars, machine guns and snipers.

AHMOSE 1 is a month-long exercise and is the first of its kind. It comes after the UK and Egypt signed a Memorandum of Understanding last year. The agreement pledged the two nations to conduct joint military exercises as part of efforts to strengthen their counter-terrorism cooperation.

British Ambassador to Egypt Sir Geoffrey Adams said the exercise “marks the beginning of increased defence cooperation” which aims to develop a “safer, more secure region”.
