1920 Revolution Brigades

The 1920 Revolution Brigades is a Sunni militia group in Iraq, which includes former members of the disbanded Iraqi army. The group has used improvised explosive devices, and armed attacks against U.S occupation forces. Its aim is to establish a liberated and independent Islamic Iraqi state and to free Iraq from foreign occupation. The name refers to the 1920 revolution against British colonial rule in Iraq. In March, 2007 some of its members broke off from the 1920 Revolution Brigades to form Hamas of Iraq. 1920 Revolution Brigades' fighters have also joined the Sons of Iraq (Awakening Councils), which was founded by tribal leaders to combat Al Qaeda. The group initially opposed the US coalition forces in Iraq, but later on collaborated with US troops to oppose al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).Centre of OperationsThe 1920 Revolution Brigades is active in Baghdad, Fallujah and Buhriz

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.

TRAC is a unique, comprehensive resource for the study of political violence of all kinds.
