EUFOR soldiers in conjunction with a unit of the RS Ministry of Interior Gendarmerie and Banja Luka police carried out a high speed civilian evacuation exercise of OSCE personnel in Banja Luka on Tuesday the 8 October 2019, as part of exercise Quick Response 2019. Under the eyes of EUFOR’s Chief of Staff Brigadier General László Szabó, the EUFOR troops from the Austrian contingent allowed the gendarmerie to secure the surrounding area first before they entered the OSCE building and “rescued” the civilians. Then in cooperation with the gendarmerie they quickly withdrew from the area in a convoy of vehicles using a high speed blue light escort provided by the police.
