IED Training in Ghazni
Members of the Afghan National Security Forces graduated from an Explosive Hazardous Reduction Course or EHRC in Gelan district, Ghazni province. The ANA and ALP members from Muqor district completed the 11-day course designed to teach security forces how to identify and disarm various types of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The threat of IEDs remains high in Afghanistan and over 50% of ANSF casualties are from IEDs. (source info from "Afghan forces complete counter IED training in Ghazni", DVIDS, February 7, 2014.).
