Hundreds of tribal fighters join the Syrian army

Hundreds of tribal fighters join the Syrian army

Damascus, Apr 11 (Prensa Latina) At least 400 members of Syrian tribes and clans enlisted in the Popular Defense Force, the largest paramilitary formation fighting against terrorism and occupation alongside the national army.

The new fighters underwent intensive training and are now fully prepared to conduct whatever mission is assigned to them, said Major General Maan Khadour, a military commander in Hasakeh, capital of the homonymous province.

The officer revealed that the number of tribal volunteers who join the Popular Defense Force grows with each day, which would consolidate the position of the regulars in their fight against mercenary groups servile to the forces of the United States and Turkey present illegally in Syrian territory.

According to Hasan Saloumi, commander of the force, over a thousand new combatants are expected to join in the coming weeks.

The Syrian tribes and clans expressed on several occasions their rejection of the illegal presence of foreign forces on Syrian soil and their attachment to the resistance to expel them.

They announced last year the formation of an army whose mission is to support the Syrian armed forces in their fight against terrorism and carry out actions aimed at expelling the invaders.
