An 'Eager Lion' education: How to take on hijackers

Jordanian Special Forces emerge from the water to conduct a sea-based assault on a target ashore during a demonstration to the media and civilian observers at Eager Lion in Aqaba, Jordan, June 5.

Navy Seals alongside Special Forces from Jordan, France, Pakistan, Brunei and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia used helicopters, inflatable boats and patrol craft to demonstrate how they would regain control of a hijacked ferry and conduct a sea-based assault on a target ashore, during Eager Lion 2014 in Jordan. Eager Lion was a two-week exercise that involved 12,000 personnel, about half of them American.
