The Commander of EUFOR, Major General Reinhard Trischak and the US Ambassador, His Excellency Eric Nelson, flew to the ammunition destruction site at Glamoč, on Tuesday 24 September. They received a briefing on the work going on there and took part in the destruction of some excess ammunition, which if not disposed of properly can, as it deteriorates, become a significant safety risk to the population of BiH.

Glamoč destruction site is capable of disposing of up to two tons of explosives per day; however the actual amount disposed of daily depends very much on the type of explosive and the atmospheric conditions.

The Commander of EUFOR was also accompanied by a selection of EUFOR’s weapons and ammunition specialists who also benefitted from the briefing and were able to observe the destruction of the ordnance.
