A military exercise by the Hellenic Army, code-named “Kallimachos”, took place on Feb. 4 at the Koromila base in the township of Argyroupolis, in northern Kilkis prefecture. The exercise focused on “crowd evacuation”, “conflict deterrence” and “feuding parties’ control” simulations, military sources said Thursday.

The exercise was held within the framework of training by the army's 71st airborne brigade, which participates in EU peace operations.

The brigade forms the basis of HELBROC 4, an EU battlegroup comprised of units from Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and Cyprus.
