In addition to the senior leaders in the militias, the sources confirmed that there are dozens of middle leaders registered in the framework of these programs, especially the master’s program, in order to be granted these certificates within the framework of the militias’ planning to employ and absorb them within the framework of state institutions under their control, or within the framework of any government resulting from a political settlement futuristic.
