Over 4,000 fresh Syrian Army Soldiers Graduate Officer Training School

AlMasdarNews reports: Over 4,000 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have completed officer training school at the Homs Military Academy after nearly three straight years of education.

The 4,000+ officers will now be designated the rank of “lieutenant” before they are deployed to several fronts across the country.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, the new graduates specialized in several military categories, including tank warfare, logistics, technical affairs, air defense, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare.

Another batch of officers are expected to graduate from the Homs Military Academy in April, swelling the Syrian Army’s ranks with well-trained soldiers.

    I find it hard to believe that they held up 4000 officer recruits for 3 years of school !! The SAA is refitting their units in 3 months time? It sounds like a lot of bull. There is a battle to be fought in IDLEB province! The rebels are in serious trouble.

      It’s a marathon, not a sprint. West Point in the U.S. is a 4yr program and they graduate 2nd lieutenants. Building up an officer core is not a bad idea. It probably helps morale as well.
