The international special operations community has once again amassed across West Africa as part of Exercise Flintlock, designed to further develop the capabilities of indigenous special mission units across the continent.

Conducted between 27 February and 16 March the annual training package continues to extend its influence across the region with seven countries hosting various serials. Directing staff were supplied by special operations forces (SOF) components from across NATO and non-NATO entity partners.

Hosts this year include Burkina Faso, Chad, Cameroon, Niger, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia with additional participants including Algeria, Cape Verde, Nigeria and Senegal.
