The BDW intervened under the UN banner in Somalia in 1995-97 (UNITAF then UNOSOM II), in ex-Yugoslavia 1995-99 (IFOR in Bosnia and Herzegovina), and more specifically took part to the Operation Libelle during the Albanian riots in 1997. German troops also participated in the KFOR responsible to peacekeeping operations in Kosovo (1988-99), operations during and after the battle of Tetovo (Macedonia) in 2001, as known as Operation Essential Harvest altogether with French and Spanish NATO troops. More famously German troops were deployed in the 2000s in Afghanistan as part of ISAF, deploring 57 casualties at the end of the intervention. 850 German troops were deployed in Operation Resolute Support until 2014, as part of NATO.
In 2011 (the last known intervention in Europe of the BDW) German troops took part in KFOR deployed in North Kosovo during the crisis.
