Palestinian Forces Fighting Alongside the Syrian Regime

(MEMRI) In addition to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Lebanese Hizbullah, and Shi'ite Iraqi, Afghani, and Pakistani militias, Palestinian forces are also fighting alongside the Syrian regime. The main Palestinian forces included the 60,000-strong Palestinian Liberation Army - "the military wing of the PLO" - and Liwa Al-Quds, led by Muhammad Sa'id, which comprises several thousand residents of Palestinian refugee camps near Aleppo. In recent days, a new Palestinian group has emerged, the Galilee Forces (Quwat Al-Jalil) or Galilee Brigade (Liwa Al-Jalil). This group is the military wing of the Palestinian Youth Return Movement, and is led by Fadi Al-Mallah.
