COM EUFOR, Major General Reinhard Trischak had the pleasure of hosting BiH Ministers and BHMAC representatives today at a demining site near Kalesija 120km north of Sarajevo. The delegation landed in the area close to Tuzla by EUFOR helicopter and were able to witness demining operations first hand.
EUFOR mine clearance experts based at Camp Butmir joined up with a team from the Federal Department of Civil Protection (FUCZ) to make safe some newly discovered devices. The mines were discovered near a hiking trail in a remote part of the Pašina Mountain where access by vehicle is impossible. EUFOR used one of its helicopters for the 8 minute flight to winch the teams in close enough so they could walk to the mined area and begin making it safe.
