Ghana, for the first time in 15 years, will be hosting Exercise Flintlock 2023 in March this year. The exercise will be co-hosted with Cote d’lvoire, who hosted it last year.
Flintlock is the U.S. Africa Command’s premier and largest annual special operations exercise combining military and law enforcement to strengthen African and international special operations forces’ capabilities.
The exercise, which has been conducted annually since 2005, operates on the basis of mutual respect and collaboration to advance the shared interests of regional stability.
It also aims at strengthening African Partner Nations’ abilities to provide local security, improve Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence/Information sharing between African Partner Nations and their Western allies.
This year’s edition will host over 200 participants from 30 countries and inter-agencies to develop a global Special Operators Forces network among African and International Partners.
They will also work together to enable a safer Africa with the protection of civilian populations as one of its core mandates.
