AFL completes non-lethal weapons training

An armed forces of Liberia soldier, posing as a rioter, strikes a line of AFL personnel during a non-lethal weapons skills demonstration at Edwin Binyah Kesselly Military Barracks, Liberia, March 13. More than 200 AFL soldiers participated in the three-week training provided by U.S. Marines from Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force 12, Naval Air Station Sigonella, Sicily, Italy. The course was established to train the AFL on how to assist local police forces in handling large-scale domestic disturbances without resulting to using deadly force.

The live-fire exercise served as the culminating event of the platoon’s two-week RPG familiarization ahead of an eventual deployment to Mali.  ONWARD LIBERTY is a U.S. Marine Corps Forces Africa-led operation comprised of joint U.S. service members who mentor and advise the AFL in order to develop a national military that is responsible, operationally capable and respectful of civilian authority and the rule of law. OOL’s goal is to assist the AFL in building a professional and capable military force that can effectively contribute to the overall security environment in Liberia.  OOL personnel continue to mentor AFL leaders and training staff at all levels to ensure the deploying platoon is properly trained and equipped to succeed in partner-nation operations in Mali and to represent Liberia as a legitimate, capable and professional force for good.
