Turkey trains 800 more Syrian police personnel


Turkey's Police Academy is providing advanced training to 800 Syrian police personnel who will carry out their duties in northwestern Syrian city of Afrin.

The academy and special forces unit members are training the candidates on police regulations, general discipline and operational training, such as destroying improvised explosive devices.

They are also being given training on interventions in social incidents and urban warfare.

The training started on May 18 in Turkey and will end on June 8.

Following the 21-day training, the trained personnel will assume their security duties in Afrin, which was liberated earlier this year by Turkish military and Free Syrian Army from the PKK/PYD-YPG and Daesh terrorist organizations.

On May 25, a total of 620 Syrian police personnel graduated from the Turkish Police Academy and were later deployed in Afrin.

Locals are returning to their homes in Afrin as the Turkey-led operation ensures a safer environment for civilians in the area.
