Angola will host two military exercises - "Exercícios Felino" - in the town of Catumbela, Lobito municipality (Benguela), in September. The first exercise of this kind took place last year in São Tomé and Príncipe. Angola will conduct two drills this year, "Felino 2018" followed by "Felino 2019," with forces on the ground, to test future humanitarian aid and rescue missions.
