Religious motivations, with about 63.5 percent, is the biggest reason for the presence of combatant on the front, the revolutionary motives are the second rate with 33.5 percent and the national motives with 3 percent have been the smallest role in encouraging the combatants to attend on the sacred defense fronts.
