First PRT-15 peacekeepers return from Afghanistan


On October 22 the first troops of the 15th rotation of the Provincial Reconstruction Team of Ghor returned to Šiauliai Airport from the multinational mission in Afghanistan. They were welcomed by their families and representatives of the Lithuanian Grand Duchess Birutė Motorised Infantry Battalion. The rest of the PRT-15 military personnel will redeploy by the end of November.


The PRT-15 which has nearly completed its service in the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission in Afghanistan was formed mainly by the Lithuanian Grand Duchess Birutė Motorised Infantry Battalion. It will be replaced by the PRT-16 manned by the 8th Territorial Unit of the Didžioji Kova Military District of the National Defence Volunteer Force (based in Vilnius).
