"On October 3, Russian and Pakistani troops carried out joint reconnaissance and sabotage operations in the rear of an improvised enemy at a special forces training center in Cherat, Pakistan," the SMD press service said in a statement.
The troops had to detect and destroy an improvised enemy command post located in Cherat's mountainous terrain. The two countries' army personnel improved their reconnaissance and search skills, as well as concealing movements with the use of terrain.
The Pakistani Army and the Russian Ground Forces have come together in military exercises for the first time on September 24, with around 70 personnel from Russia's Southern Military District (SMD) mechanized infantry brigade, stationed in the Karachaevo–Cherkessian Republic, and a total of 200 troops in total taking part on both sides.
The drills are taking place at the Army High Altitude School in northern Pakistan's Rattu and at a special forces training center in Cherat. The exercises will last through to October 10.
