Issues of inviting young Syrians to UAR government forces

31
In the province of Damascus, an important meeting of local elders, government officials and the public was held. The main topics of discussion were local security issues, as well as the call of local youth in the Syrian army. This meeting is remarkable in that the recruitment of young people into the Syrian army against the background of hostilities in the country is being discussed for the first time in several years.


The governor of the metropolitan province noted that today already about 4 thousands of young Syrians (and this is only in the province of Damascus) have applied for service in the ranks of the Syrian government forces.

From the statement of the governor, which the Syrian journalist Riyad Farid Hijab cites:
Young people are ready to contribute to the stability and security in the country.


However, representatives of the administration have so far been forced to refuse many young Syrians to be admitted to the army, so that after a while they can give a green light to the call not just as an eager revenge for the death of their relatives, but as a soldier who is given the opportunity to become the owner of a full-fledged MES In other words, we are talking about the need to restore in Syria a full-fledged learning process in the army as well. At the same time, it is important for the Syrian authorities that the Syrian youth, in case of refusal today, do not take up weapon already tomorrow

From the statement of the governor:
Let's reason logically. If a young man who, due to age and life circumstances, wants revenge for the death of his parents at the hands of terrorists, refuses the government army, what will he do? Most likely, he will find the opportunity to buy weapons and join the ranks of the militia. For such young people still need to provide places in the armed forces. They will be trained not only to shoot from a machine gun, but also to control a tank. He will receive a related specialty.


Issues of inviting young Syrians to UAR government forces

Syria. Aleppo


Riyad Farid Hijab interviewed a young Syrian who applied for membership in the SAR armed forces. According to the young man, whose name is Ahmad, he is determined to help Syria finally get rid of the terrorists and their accomplices.

From the statement of Ahmad:
We must force the occupiers to leave the lands of the Arab Republic, and they, like any bandits, understand only power!


At the same time, the Syrian said that he was ready to fight and against the American servicemen who are illegally in his country.

Against this background, there are reports from the Middle East that the United States is having problems with contacts with Jordan, which has in fact recently provided the US army with logistics operations in several provinces of Syria. The problems are related to the fact that the Jordanian authorities have reacted extremely negatively to the decision of the US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Without Amman’s logistical support, the issue of providing American bases in Syria hangs in the air, especially considering that the United States also has problems with another state neighboring Turkey - Turkey.

        Great idea! all the more Madame Frau Merkel, having rested on a freebie, rested and gained strength. ... Moreover, it is high time for them to give up under a soft spot with their feet and return them back from Europe to their native land, which the Russian army liberated for them!

      In Syria, like in any Arab country, a completely different army, unlike ours, or any other European one. The hierarchy of the Middle Ages flourishes in full force. There is a video where Colonel Suheil the TIGER brigade commander flies to the position of the brigade by helicopter, and after leaving it The soldiers kiss and bow. And he nurses in a Sultan’s dressing gown. Compliance with the master, and showing his strength, power. That's what he longs for.

        And then servility? You did not think that all this is sincere? It’s just customary for the Arabs to express gratitude ... Those soldiers who, with their commander, didn’t eat a pound of raisins, can afford it. Wasn’t it the same with us during the war? It was only expressed differently by virtue of our traditions. The soldiers adored and sincerely loved their commanders with whom they passed through fire and through water, through Warsaw and through Berlin.
        All these nonsense about the gray Middle Ages are very fond of telling the democrats in the west, so tell them. They will like ... They will tell you about the bad "medieval hierarchy", but they will not destroy their hierarchy.

          They allow themselves a lot, and Suheil and his fighters. Under his leadership there is even a division of "blue" from different countries who wished to fight with him ...

        The ideology needs to be reviewed in the Syrian army so that they do not go "under the banner of others."

    Arabs love weapons, but they don’t want, and they don’t know how to fight. The war with ISIS showed it. Where were they before when Muslim fanatics took cities one by one, together with abandoned weapons, equipment and ammunition until they arrived there Ordinary Russian advisers from the MTR? As for Jordan, it is necessary to help them create even greater difficulties for the United States.

      Actually, ISIS also had Arabs. Only Arabs with tremendous support (financial, material and informational-analytical) from very poor countries and when the support came from Russia, the chances simply leveled off. And before that, the chances of the Syrians and “Ishilovites” were very unequal.

    And who fought there until there was a call? And how the victory became apparent, decided to become warriors?
    Nothing was written about the principles of manning the Syrian army. Especially recently.
    Well, okay, they won, and good.

      How do you know how things are in Syria, from our media? Or how can one talk about young men who want to avenge the death of relatives? There is also a different age, so the Syrians are doing everything right in this regard. And the position we came there and saved everyone, and now they wanted to become warriors at least wrong, the SAR army suffered huge losses during this war and if the Syrians hadn’t pulled out allies, this does not mean that the Syrians made a small contribution to their victory, they paid with enough blood.

        That's right. But the help of Hezbollah and the IRGC was also invaluable. Like our videoconferencing soldier

    Commendable. That's just this mass readiness appeared for some reason today, and not 3-4 years ago. How many young and sturdy people left as refugees in Europe instead of defending their country with arms in their hands?

    They need to right now begin to recreate both the country and the army, essentially anew. And at the same time clean Syria from gangs, and along the way from the American military. So the recruitment of young people in the army must begin immediately.

    Now the main task for the new Syrian authorities is to recruit adequate fighters in the army who are ready to follow orders and train. It makes no sense to create another militia, although any people will need to be restored to clear up

    Ah well done, you immediately feel the upbringing. You still call me a liberal, the fifth column, why trifle? The Middle Ages are everywhere in the Middle East. What is in Yemen, what is in Oman, what is in Iran, in any other country. I tell you this because I saw the Syrians' life more than forty years ago, when I was there on a business trip with my commander, a mediator with a military adviser. I don’t think that they have changed during this time, on the contrary, their standard of living has changed in the direction traditional for their peoples. go. For you you can see the heads being chopped off and the stoning of women accused of infidelity is normal, civilized, the Shiite massacre, with the Sunnis and all, old and small, is normal? For me, as for a European person there isn’t. On TV you are shown only the tip of the iceberg , with milk rivers, and jelly banks. Therefore, do not pull the trishkin caftan over the Muslim robe. We are different.

    At the beginning of the civil war in Syria in 2011, every second soldier deserted from its huge army. This was before ISIS and the Americans. Some of the deserters fled to their homes, some founded detachments / gangs or joined the ranks of the opposition.
    Now the authorities are afraid to limit calls. Moreover, the soldier has nothing to feed.
    Each division has them at the rear. Either they are taken from the locals, or (more often) they exchange food for military equipment and equipment: a truck for flour, for example.

      Absolutely correct. But the majority of Russians have an idea that the IS and other jihadists, not the Syrians, but a huge army are unknown from where the invaders came to Syria ... And before that there was supposedly - quiet, smoothness and God's grace. And of course, this unknown army was created by Israel and the United States. In general, Americans and Jews are to blame for the concept of the Russian layman in all the troubles of Russia, somehow ...

    Here I agree with you. Otherwise, who will defend Syria? Our bases are not for protection from neighbors (although this will cool them down), but for more formidable enemies. Israel, and the USA! And advisers and MTRs of the VKS cannot always fight there for them.

    The governor of the metropolitan province noted that today about 4 of thousands of young Syrians have submitted applications for service in the ranks of the Syrian government troops.

    And what remains for them? Once caught, it means a volunteer.
