Pa­terna to host NATO’s big­gest drill in 20 years

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

Mil­i­tary per­son­nel from Pa­terna will take part in the mil­i­tary ex­er­cises that are to be car­ried out by NATO in Nor­way from Oc­to­ber 20 to Novem­ber 8.

Nearly 50 ve­hi­cles and 200 mil­i­tary men and women left Pa­terna late last week, head­ing to take part in the largest mil­i­tary drill in 20 years on our con­ti­nent. NATO’s Tri­dent Junc­ture will mo­bilise ground troops in Nor­way, air forces in Swe­den and Fin­land, and sea forces in the Baltic and North At­lantic seas. A to­tal of 45,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to take part, in an at­tempt to flex mil­i­tary mus­cle and act as a de­ter­rent for po­ten­tial threats. It will also help train troops who are to be­come a part of the NATO Re­sponse Force 2019.
