United States and Moroccan forces met to plan for the June 2021 African Lion exercise, which brought together more than 7,000 troops from Morocco, Senegal, Tunisia, the U.S. and elsewhere. Planners considered this hill in Agadir, Morocco, for small-weapons training. Hundreds of other planners worked virtually to set goals and COVID-19 protocols. Established in 2002, African Lion is U.S. Africa Command’s largest exercise and helps build cooperation, strengthen relationships, and increase readiness to counter security challenges in North Africa and Southern Europe.
