Libya: Nation Launches Rebel Integration Project

Libya's Warriors Affairs Committee is set to reintegrate former revolutionaries into civilian life, Libya Herald reported on Monday (December 17th). The project will help 5,000 former fighters establish their own SMEs. Each revolutionary will be eligible for a maximum grant of 100,000 dinars.

A larger initiative benefits some 140,000 former rebels. Plans include sending 5,000 fighters to study abroad, setting up vocational training for 10,000 revolutionaries, assisting 20,000 warriors with post-traumatic stress care, and preparing 2,000 revolutionaries for public service positions.
