KISMAYO– African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) and Somali Security Forces (SSF) have completed a two-week course on Micro Unmanned Aerial Surveillance (MUAS) drones at the Sector 2 Headquarter in Dhobley town, Jubbaland State.

At the closing ceremony, the ATMIS KDF Contingent, Brig. Seif Salim Rashid, called on the troops to make use and apply the new skills to good use to support peace and security in Somalia.

According to a statement from ATMIS, similar training will be done for Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, and Uganda contingent troops in a bid to build the capacity of the officers to deal with terror.
