The military on Friday announced it will conduct the final phase of a pre-deployment training for GAMCOY 23 starting on Sunday August 23.
In a statement shared with The Fatu Network, the military said a live firing exercise will take place at the Lance Corporal Bojang’s Range in Brikama as part of the training. It will culminate in troops moving to the forward operating base in Yundum.
“However, while at the Forward Operating Base in Yundum, the use of blank ammunition during the exercise will be done. Therefore, the general public especially residents living around Brikama, Yundum, Banjulinding, Sinchu, Jabang, Jambur and other satellite villages are urged not to panic and are urged to go about their normal businesses,” the army said.
GAMCOY 23 is being readied for deployment to Dafur.
