posted on 30/08/2015: 2845 views

The Liwa National Service Training Centre yesterday received the fourth batch of male recruits who completed their general secondary school certificate and graduates from colleges and universities.

The centre also received Emirati women recruits who volunteered to join military service in a move that stems from their allegiance to the nation as well as courage to join military forces and safeguard the country.

The Khawla Bint Al Azwar Military School, the Gulf region's first military college for women, also received the third batch of women recruits who opted to join national service. The service is optional for women aged between 18 and 30 provided they get the consent of their parents.

Under the military service law, Emirati men who have finished secondary school or aged 18-30 will have to serve nine months, while those who have not will serve two years. The service is optional for women, who may be trained for nine months, regardless of their education, according to the law.

A number of women recruits expressed their pride in joining the national service, saying that they opted to join the military motivated by their patriotism and desire to defend their country. – Gulf News -
