Philippine Army to train with Israeli forces on counter terrorism

Collaboration between Israel and the Philippines has gone beyond the buyer and seller of military weapons and equipment.
The Philippine Army and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are set to hold first training collaboration which will be a Counter-Terrorism Trainer’s Training (CTTT).

In pursuance to this endeavor, delegates from  IDF, headed by Brig. Gen. Dan Goldfus, paid a courtesy call to the Philippine Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Macairog S. Alberto.

The Philippine Army (PA) said the CTTT aims to enhance the counter-terrorism capabilities of Army personnel.
“It also aims to improve the operational and instructional skills of the PA Training Schools in anti-terrorism and combat techniques,” it added.
Israel through Brig. Gen. Goldfus acknowledged that there are many lessons their soldiers could also learn from the Philippine Army based on the Marawi seiged perpetrated by the ISIS inspired MAute group, and including the other invaluable combat experiences. 

“They want to share their experience [and] at the same time teach us how to utilize the technology they are using. We want to complement our own strengths since we have strengths as well,” the Philippine Army chief told reporters.

Philippine National Police counter terrorism training

The Philippine National Police (PNP) has just agreed with their Israeli counterpart and will undergo a counter- terrorism.

“What we asked from them is training kasi alam naman natin talaga sila is always very alert iba talaga ang level of training nila it’s because iba ang level of threat sa kanila (because we know that they are always very alert and they have very high level of training because of level of threat in their country),”  PNP Chief, General Oscar Albayalde said in a presscon at Camp Crame.
“So I asked if probably have training to be conducted here at the PNP and dito sa mga camps naming (here in our camps) and they are very willing to share their skills and knowledge,” he added.
