The Hel­lenic Army’s Land Mine Clear­ance Squad (TENX) re­cov­ered a to­tal of 106 mis­siles, 42 hand grenades and 13 land mines dat­ing to var­i­ous con­flicts from dif­fer­ent parts of the coun­try as part of a clear­ance op­er­a­tion last month, de­fense of­fi­cials said yes­ter­day. The mu­ni­tions were all de­stroyed in con­trolled pro­ce­dures by TENX ex­perts. The suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the op­er­a­tion al­lowed the army to hand over 24 hectares of cleared land to lo­cal author­i­ties, of­fi­cials said.
