Conflict Armament Research in Lebanon


Location: Lebanon

Type: NGO

Conflict Armament Research (CAR) are weapons investigators, with teams around the world. CAR have carried out research into IEDs mostly in Iraq and Syria, however they have performed CIED in Lebanon also. In Lebanon, CAR carries out specific CIED training on the ground.

This has included a series of C-IED training sessions teaching evidence collection, data recording, different types of IEDs, countermeasures and component tracing. Though most of CAR’s CIED work is self-funded, this project in Lebanon is funded by the UK government in order to build Lebanon CIED capacity.

This profile is part of AOAV’s investigation into counter-IED (C-IED) actors around the globe. To see the list of all C-IED actors recorded by AOAV, see here. To see those engaged in the Middle East, the Sahel, North Africa or other highly impacted countries please see here, here, here, and here respectively. This research was made possible by funding from the NATO Counter Improvised Explosive Devices Centre of Excellence (C-IED COE).
