Phl-Indonesia joint exercises slated May

Some 40 Filipino and Indonesian soldiers are set to participate in side-by-side military training exercises on jungle warfare, urban tactics, and sniping operations this May.

Philippine Army spokesperson, Col. Xerxes Trinidad, in a statement over the weekend, said the 15th iteration of the Philippines-Indonesia bilateral training will be held from 21 to 30 May at the First Scout Ranger Regiment headquarters in Camp Pablo Tecson, San Miguel, Bulacan.

The Indonesian Army’s (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Darat) Komando Cadangan Strategis Angkatan Darat (Kostrad) met with its local counterpart on 15 March for the secretariat meeting and planning conference for the upcoming training activities.

These bilateral exercises are geared toward bolstering the tactics, techniques and military procedures of the participating units of both the Philippine and Indonesian armies.

To recall, the Philippine Army Scout Rangers and their Indonesian counterparts trained side-by-side in counterinsurgency and counterterrorism operations at the Taipur Military Camp, Cilodong and Sangga Buana Training Site, Karawang, West Java, Indonesia in April last year.
