Syrian Civil War

Liwa al-Quds or The Jerusalem Brigade is a Syrian Palestinian pro-Ba'ath government group that operates in Aleppo, formed in 2013 by the engineer Muhammad al-Sa’eed. By the beginning of 2015, the group had suffered 200 killed and over 400 wounded since its establishment.[1] The group is composed of predominately Sunni Palestinians from the al-Nayrab refugee camp. Liwa al-Quds is believed to be the largest loyalist auxiliary force operating in Aleppo.[2]

Operational history

The group supported the Syrian Army in its effort to reopen the main supply line to Aleppo in 2015.[3]
