The current SOLI Summer 2016 Mission is designed to provide both basic and advanced training to the NPF (Nineveh Plain Force). Despite the extreme summer heat, the ISIS attack on the town of Teleskof in May (where SOLI conducts training and NPF is based) showed that training is needed more than ever. The NPF (and the NPU, previously trained by SOLI) performed well in recapturing the town from ISIS, but more training is needed.
The SOLI Summer 2016 Mission will at least double the SOLI Team of trainers, allowing SOLI to provide advanced training (such as marksmanship) as well as both additional basic training for added practice and basic training for new recruits. With added personnel and training supplies, SOLI can now run up to 3 courses simultaineously.
