The tasks deriving from the UN resolutions were aimed to carry out two
different main operational and humanitarian activities.
Operational interventions were divided into two types: those aimed at the protection of
personnel and vehicles and those aimed at guaranteeing the safety and
control of the territory.
Among the technical-tactical procedures of the land
component, the Humanitarian Operational Circuits proved to be particularly
effective, created to carry out rescue activities against the most distant or
difficult to reach villages. In fact, developing humanitarian action in these
localities would have blocked the influx of large masses of civilians seeking
relief in the capital.
The interventions, on a periodic basis and with a maximum duration of 10-12
days, were carried out by groups of the strength of a company, about one
hundred men, articulating the need on the following components:
operational, health, humanitarian, veterinary, specialist support .
