Second batch of UAE recruits national service - in pictures

ABU DHABI// Hundreds of Emiratis began their first day of national service on Sunday after checking into military camps.

The enlisting citizens were part of a second batch of recruits to begin their military training following the thousands of enrollees that made up the first in September.

In contrast to the first round, which consisted mainly of high-school graduates, the second batch was made up of Emiratis from across the designated age range of service – from 18 to 30 years old.
