Philippine Army and U.S. Army soldiers took turns in operating truck-mounted rocket launchers, anti-tank weapons and demonstrated squad live exercises in northern Philippines on Friday.
The live fire exercises at Fort Magsaysay in Nueva Ecija province were part of an annual joint military drill called ‘SALAKNIB.’
The U.S. and the Philippines have agreed to hold more small and major combat exercises in 2023 and expand annual military drills following disruptions caused by two years of coronavirus lockdowns, according to Philippine military officials. (AP)
