Suqour al-Sham Brigade

The Suqour al-Sham brigade was formed in September 2011 under the leadership of Ahmed Abu Issa. According to its website, the brigade has a civilian and a military wing. The civilian wing is run by a shura council headed by Issa. This wing is responsible for acquiring military supplies, food, and media operations. The military wing is independent, but acts on the advice of the civilian leadership.VideoVideo:2012 FNN Syria Members of the Suqour al Sham Brigade during one of their operationsVideo: 2012 FNN Syria Idlib An attack by Suqour al Sham and Fajr al Islam Brigade (whom Suqour al Sham has many join missions) on a military envoy headed to Ma'arat al NoumanVideo: March 2014 Suquor al-Sham’s Aisha Brigade firing on militia of regime supporters in Daraa, Syria.  For Aisha Brigade's defection to Islamic State please seeIslamic State all Known Brigades

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.
