I read that. Good news, but what an almost endless mission. Nearly a million mines that all have to be taken care of with the greatest caution. I hope they can do some of it more efficiently than by foot and hand. Otherwise, it is very likely that lives will be lost during the pursuit.

That’s a crazy amount of mines!

All the best, Leia

#1 They must have figured out a systematic way of doing it surely. That would take an eternity otherwise!

In the video, it looked like a very slow process.

Bigger metal detectors or more dogs for the task? Laughing out loud

Or a robotized armored bulldozer that just lets them blow up when it passes. :-)

They definitely wouldn't appear out of place (Obviously the mine clearers are a lot larger)
