FRUD combatants were assembled in two locations, Ribta and Waddi, in the north of the country to be demobilized, disarmed and integrated into the security forces. According to a report, 1,160 FRUD combatants were counted at the assembly points. The National Police Force and the National Army jointly undertook an inventory of FRUD membership. According to a report, 300 members of FRUD were enrolled in the armed forces and the police, while 700 were demobilized. Those who were demobilized received grants.1 According to the same report, for those who were demobilized, the reintegration program had already started and included “a medical component aimed at helping the handicapped, vocational training in a number of fields relating to microprojects (welding, mechanics, computers), and assistance for widows and orphans, who are given appropriate training.”
