BBC: Training the Iraqi Army to Remove Landmines

Print pagePDF page

BBC News recently released a short documentary that reveals first-hand the extreme dangers facing the Iraqi army in its fight against improvised explosive devices (IEDs) – the weapon of choice for the  so-called Islamic State (IS).

After having cleared IS forces from an area, the Iraqi army is constantly having to defuse and remove explosives left behind by militant forces.  Along with other forces, British soldiers are training the Iraqis in how to deal with the threats that range from minefields to car bombs.

Landmines and other explosive remnants kill and injure thousands of people. Please click this link to watch the documentary and to learn more about this important issue:
