The Syrian policemen were trained with the aim of providing safety and security in the region where the Euphrates Shield Operation was held and Azaz district in northwestern Syria, the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.
The participants had been selected for the training on voluntary basis, the source added.
Twenty percent of the total participants took part in special forces unit’s training. Graduates from the training, which began last year, have already started their duties at al-Bab, Azaz, Jarabulus and Cobanbey.
