Russian military advisors started training hundreds of Syrian Army recruits in the Qalamoun mountains, as part of the first stage of the rebuilding process.
Engineering and infantry units of the Syrian Army were the first group in Damascus province that took part in the rebuilding process , while other training sessions were done in different regions of Syria.
The Russian Armed Forces’ Demining Center disclosed late in January that it established a base center in Aleppo to train Syrian soldiers to form new engineering units.
Head of the Russian Demining Center Igor Mikhailic said that the best soldiers of the Syrian Army would be trained in the newly-stablished demining center in Aleppo.
He added that the newly-established base would train between 50 up to 70 Syrian soldiers in each phase.
Mikhailic went on to say that new engineering units of the Syrian Army would be formed at the end of each training course.
These new engineering units would be tasked with demining operations in Aleppo and other regions that were freed from terrorists, he added.
Mikhailic pointed out that sappers were involved in a great job in Aleppo, disclosing that the sappers discovered a large depot of guided and anti-tank missiles in one of the neighborhoods of Aleppo.
The Russian government deployed the country’s military forces known as Russian Police to Aleppo after the city’s liberation, to shoulder responsibility of maintaining security of soldiers, sappers and Russian medical teams in the region.
