EUTM SOMALIA IN FIGURES

To adhere at 5th Mandate tasks, which forecast training, mentoring and advisory activities, the EUTM-S trains companies level units (integrated and multi clan), carrying out courses to train future trainers (Train the Trainers Program) and conducting its advising and mentoring role in favour of Somali Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Somali National Army (SNA) personnel. These activities, led by the Mission, are accomplished in close coordination with others International Partners based in Somalia.

In the next future, the Mission activities will not change; the SNA companies trained by EUTM-S personnel will be a further “tool” at disposal of Somali Authorities, both for struggling against Al-Shabaab and to start, in concrete manner, the transitional process for gradual withdrawer of AMISOM troops and the contextual hand over of security responsibilities to Somali Defence Forces.

EUTM Somalia

On 3rd April, the European Union Training Mission Somalia delivered the first unit patches to 98 soldiers belonging the 1st Light Infantry Company of the BIRJEH Battalion.
The ceremony was held in Mogadishu at the General Dhagabadan Training Centre (GDTC) to honour the achievements of these Somali National Army Soldiers as they continue their training delivered by EUTM-Somalia. These unit patches will identify these soldiers as belonging to the 1st Light Infantry Company and foster unit cohesion.
“It is important for you to know and take pride in your belonging to the SNA” said the Colonel Juan Lopez Martin, chief of the Training Team during the ceremony “because reinforcing the capacities of Somali National Army SNA will contribute to the stability of Somalia and will support the Guulwade Plan towards further transition plan”.

On 31st March 2018 the closing ceremony of the 2st EUTM-S Combat Engineering Course was held at the General Dhagabadan Training Camp in Mogadishu (GDTC).
The EUTM-S Mission Force Commander, BG Pietro Addis, the Chief of SNA Engineer Department, BG Omar Jama, the GDTC Commander, BG Mohamed Mohamud Saney and the Commander of the 32nd Eng. Battalion, Col. Ahmed Shire Warsame attended the event.
All twenty Somali National Army (SNA) soldiers, belonging to the 32nd Engineering Battalion, after showing high motivation and willingness to learn from the European trainers, completed the challenging course successfully. Among others, they got the basic knowledge and skills on constructing obstacles for tactical maneuvers and setting up defensive positions. In addition, the training activity offered the participants the opportunity to understand the techniques of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) which still represent one of the most devastating and accessible weapon available to terrorists to inflict casualties to military personnel and Somali civilians as well.
The delivery of such a training is fully compliant with the EUTM-S 5th mandate where the shift of training from individuals to units was the main change from the 4th one. Additionally, such activities not only are directed to contribute to the SSR of Somalia but their particular “DUAL USE” concept represents another tool in the hands of the Somali Security Forces to increase protection and security of the civilian population.
