The Cuban Army will begin a three-day military effort on 26 November to enhance its defence capabilities, the Ministry of Revolutionary Armed Forces (MINFAR) has announced.

The drills, codenamed Bastion 2009, will include the participation of units from the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionaria (revolutionary armed forces), Interior Ministry and other components of the territorial defence system.

Bastion 2009 will simulate manoeuvres and various tactical exercises including troop movement and military equipment with air flights and explosions across the country.

The exercise aims to train military chiefs and commanders in an effort to enhance the country’s defence capabilities and the operational readiness of the frontline troops.

MINFAR also declared troop and equipment movements would take place on 29 November, the Day of National Defence.
