Czech Republic hands over de-mining devices to Jordan
Petra, JORDAN, 23 April 2010 (Jordan News Agency (Petra)) - Czech Ambassador here Ivana Holoubkova on Friday handed over a modern de-mining system "BOZENA 5" to Jordan Armed Forces (JAF).
"BOZENA 5" is a remote-control machine designed for terrain de-mining from anti-personnel and anti-tank mines. The system is equipped with a rotating flail-chain de-mining device and can be used for clearance from bushes and low vegetation. The Czech de-mining aid is implementation of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed during Czech Deputy Minister of Defence for Foreign Affairs Jan Fulik last month in a bid to press ahead with de-mining operations in the Jordan Valley in cooperation with the National Committee for De-mining and Rehabilitation.
