Combined Task Group starts training in Iraq
Troops from the Iraqi Army’s 76th Brigade, a formation within the Iraqi 16th Division, are now receiving instruction in a diverse range of military skills including, advanced weapon handling, laws of armed conflict and complex obstacle breaching techniques.
Australia joins a number of other international partners already contributing to training Iraqi forces including Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
In addition to Task Group Taji’s BPC mission, Australia’s Air Task Group continues its air operations in Iraq. Australia’s Special Operation Task Group, which is contributing to the Advise and Assist mission, will be reduced later this year.
