Naval Infantry (Morocco)

The Moroccan Navy includes a naval infantry unit, which comprises three marine infantry battalions. Each battalion has about 600 men, comprising a control and supply company, a special operation company, and two combat companies. Each of these companies comprises a control and support section and three combat sections. Special operation companies of naval infantry battalions are intended to carry out intelligence operations for finding areas that are suitable for landing operations, raids and sabotage operations at infrastructure objects (naval bases, ships laid up). In a few years, the Moroccan combat divers have received training in France under French instructors.
