BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Interior Ministry graduated a new special mission force after several months of training in Damascus.

According to a new report, thee Syrian Special Mission Forces graduated several military personnel after they completed training in urban warfare and counter-terrorism.

As shown in the video below, the Special Mission Forces are trained in a variety of military subjects before they graduate and join the other groups across the country.

The Special Mission Forces have been an incredibly useful unit for the Syrian Interior Ministry, as their anti-terrorism operations have helped clear several important areas across the country.

In particular, the Special Mission Forces played an integral role during the East Ghouta offensive, as their troops managed to clear many condensed areas that were controlled by the Islamist rebels.

They were formed in 2016 after the government was advised by their Russian allies to produce an effective special unit to handle the anti-terror operations inside Syria’s major cities (e.g. Aleppo, Homs, and, Damascus).
