Coalition forces train together at Eager Lion 12

Jordanian armed forces, with the assistance of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, speak with displaced personnel during a protest at the dislocated civilians camp May 18. The camp is run by Jordanian armed forces with Lebanese armed forces providing security and U.S. military providing guidance as part of Exercise Eager Lion 12. Eager Lion 12 is an irregular warfare themed exercise including 19 countries and more than 11,000 participants focused on missions coalition partners might perform in support of contingency operations. The intent is to strengthen military-to-military relationships and interoperability through a joint, whole-of-government, multinational approach to meet current and future complex national security challenges.
