Furthermore, the exercise was designed to put the Ghana Armed Forces and other security services to the test in combined operations such as OPERATIONS CONQUERED FIST, CALM LIFE, and HALT II.

EX BURNING ARROW ’23 was held at various border areas in Ghana’s north to raise public awareness and sensitize them to the military presence, roles, and effectiveness of Northern Command in the face of acts of aggression by Terrorist Armed Groups (TAGs) and Violent Extremist (VE) groups in Ghana’s northern sector and territorial space.

Due to the recent increase in crime and other violent incidents, as well as terrorist operations along Ghana’s northern borders, it has become critical for Northern Command to train and test its troops’ ability to combat such threats.
