British Bases personnel, units from the UK and Cyprus recently undertook a three-day joint bomb disposal training in Akrotiri to “share best practices and foster working relationships for future collaboration”, a source from the British Bases said on Monday.
Exercise Hades Bident saw experts from RAF Akrotiri’s Ammunition Troop working alongside both the Cyprus police and National Guard Explosive Ordinance Disposal teams to deal potential threats from a number of explosive devices, including Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and pipe bombs under vehicles.
Also involved in the large-scale exercise was a team from the SBA police and highly experienced military bomb disposal professionals from the UK.
