Identify the key locations (Intelligence driven)
Look for the indicators
Dont try to think like a clever insurgent;
keep it simple
Where theres one cache, there are probably more
Take care of your PSS-12s, PSS-19s
Dont rely only on metal detectors; visual and
physical sweeps can be just as effective
The pace of a deliberate clearing should be set by
the team sweeping with the mine detectors
Security and dispersion always
Beware of booby-traps - let engineers handle
Let the demolition experts handle
UXO/cache reduction!

Locations
Palm groves: easy concealment, very dense
Riverbanks: easy access for boats at night
Rubbled buildings: easy to bury, hard work to find
Wadis: soft dirt, many places to hide
Caves: abundant in wadis
Desert: numerous locations to cache weapons
Shallow water: river must be calm
Gravesites: big metallic hit means a cache;
recommend excavation during hours of darkness
Rock and trash piles: buried above ground
Enclosed areas: gardens, orchards
Courtyards: personal property areas
Between buildings: narrow alleyways
Along walls: easy reference, concealment
Abandoned homes on the outskirts of the desert
Berms
In oil drums and large commercial containers
Mosques: when permission to enter is granted,
must be swept thoroughly
