During preparations for the first shift in Mali, Lithuanian troops are currently updating their individual skills, training patrol and shooting response, as well as detention and evacuation, in addition to other tactical skills. They are also attending firing exercise and studying specific features of the operation district, the Lithuanian Defense Ministry said in a press release.
