Mogadishu – 26 of November 2023.

EUTM-Somalia Force Commander, Brig.Gen. Poli, accompanied the representatives of the European Peace Facility (EPF) coming to visit the General Dhagadaban Training Centre. The delegation verified the execution of the ongoing projects, like the new shooting range and the new area for the counter improvised explosive device (C-IED) training, and evaluated the feasibility of new projects that will improve the training capabilities of the center. The European Union, through its EPF and with support of United Nations Office for Projects Service (UNOPS), executes rehabilitation works at the training facility, paying the training centre’s running costs, providing basic personal equipment for trainees and non- lethal equipment to Somali Security Forces. EUTM-S, together with other European Union players and other international actors, is committed to enhance its support to Somali Security Sector Reform providing tailored training to the Somali National Army and Somali Police Forces.
