In a historic achievement, the parachute jumping team of the Joint Special Forces has entered the Guinness World Records by breaking the record for the largest parachute formation at night.

The feat was certified by the Guinness authorities after the relevant bodies, including the World Air Sports Federation confirmed that all necessary conditions were met. The team entered the Guinness Records on December 12.

The team, which includes 25 paratroopers, has had several achievements in 2018, including winning nine gold, seven silver and four bronze medals in various competitions. Major General Hamad bin Abdullah al-Fetais al-Marri, Commander of the Joint Special Forces, received the Guinness emblem and certificate for the achievement at Darb Al Saai during the ongoing Qatar National Day celebrations, the Directorate of Defence Communication, Ministry of Defence, said in a statement. "We do not wait for the opportunity but make it.

We raised the flag of Qatar higher when we won medals and entered the Guinness World Records to continue the success story, affirming that Qatar will remain free," he said.
