US embassy to hold joint exercise with Kuwait security forces

KUWAIT, Jan 6 -- The US Embassy will conduct a Joint Combined Security Exercise (JSCE) in conjunction with Kuwait security forces on January 10, the embassy said in a press release on Tuesday.

It added that the JSCE will also include the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, the US Army Central Command (ARCENT), US Marine Corps Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team (FAST), and the US Department of State Diplomatic Security Service.

"JSCE will be an expansion on an already scheduled annual bilateral exercise. It will also serve as an opportunity for Kuwaiti and US security personnel to build on an already close working relationship," the statement said.

The exercise will take place on the US Embassy compound, and will feature simulated events, which will occur in virtually real time.

The embassy cautioned individuals residing near the compound that they might hear loud noises, gunshots, and explosions on the day of the event, urging them to remain calm and to remember that the noises were originating from the exercise. (ema @ KUNA)
