In the base of the 3rd Intervention Regiment in Beirut, the closing ceremony of the Sharpshooter Basic and Advanced – Train The Trainer course took place, an intense nine-week training activity, conducted by a Mobile Training Team composed of instructors in force at the Italian Army Infantry School.
The closing ceremony of the course took place in the presence of the Commander of the Italian Bilateral Military Mission in Lebanon (MIBIL), Colonel Angelo Sacco and Brigadier General Ghanem Hani, Commander of the Lebanese 3rd Intervention Regiment.
The course allowed to qualify 6 junior trainers and train about 30 units of the Lebanese regiment. Attendees learned notions and procedures to successfully hit targets positioned up to 500 meters, first using the supplied assault rifle and then, in the Advanced phase of the course, using the sniper rifle from Sharpshooter.
Since this is a very selective training activity, only six attendees have obtained the title of junior trainer, while the others have still completed the training course that allowed them to acquire the basic techniques to perform a precision shot over medium and long distances.
The results achieved by the 3rd Intervention Regiment staff, with the contribution of MIBIL personnel, further consolidate the link between the Italian Armed Forces and the Lebanese Armed Forces. All activities carried out in the Operational Theatre are conducted under the coordination and according to the directives given by the Joint Top Operational Command (COVI).
