Members of Pakistan and Russian Special Forces ‘staged’ a hostage rescue mission during the Druzhba-V military exercise at Tarbela, said Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a tweet on Sunday.
The DG ISPR said “#Pakistan-Russian Federation Special Forces practicing drills & procedures for hostage rescue, cordon & search operations, heli rappelling and sky diving as part of #DRUZHBA-V.”
It is pertinent to note that Pakistan participated in the opening ceremony of multinational military exercises in Russia’s Astrakhan region held in September this year.
A contingent of 20 Pakistani commandos took part in the opening ceremony of Kavkaz-2020.
The military drills were conducted from Sept 21-26 aim to assess the ability of troops to react to various challenges and learn from each other’s experiences, the ISPR said.
