A military training course for 28 personnel of Libyan Special Naval Forces was concluded Sunday at the headquarters of the Italian Special Forces in the city of Brindisi.

The spokesperson of Libyan Navy, Brigadier General Ayoub Qasim, said that the 40-day course included intensive field exercises that focused on the physical preparation, as well as other specific military skills.

He stressed that the course was 100% successful, praising the trained group who lived up to the expectations of being a special force in terms of stamina and in working as a team.

The training course is the second in a 3-part training course for the Libyan Special Forces that was agreed upon between the Libyan Navy and the Italian side in 2013.
