The second batch of self-defense squads finished training in the coastal province of Tartous on Monday to support the Syrian army in its war against terrorism.
The group comprises 180 people from different villages and towns in the province who were trained over 15 days on combat skills to protect their villages and public and private property, as well as local infrastructure and the facilities where they live or work.
Tartous Governor Safwan Abu Saadi underlined the importance of benefiting from the military sciences and to apply the training provided to the squads on the ground to protect the province from any terrorist acts and their repercussions.
