The Annual Warrior Competition is a championship that is based on physical ability, teamwork, and communication. It takes place at the King Abdullah II Special Operations Training Center (KASOTC) in Amman, Jordan. From April 24 until May 7, members of Lebanon’s Panthers and the Internal Security Forces (ISF) were taking part in the 10th edition of the Annual Warrior Competition. The Panthers won the championship, and they ranked 1st! The Panthers are one of the Special Forces of the Lebanese Army. They are the most-advanced force in Lebanon. The members’ identities are kept a secret to the local and international communities. Forty elite teams from the following countries took part in the competition: the United States of America, China, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Czech Republic, Ukraine, India, Greece, Kosovo, Moldova, Oman, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Brunei, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kenya, and Jordan. The winners returned today to Lebanon and were welcomed in Beirut’s Airport VIP room. Congratulations!
