Liwa al-Quds (Arabic: لواء القدس) or the Jerusalem Brigade is a Sunni Palestinian pro-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. The group is composed of predominately Sunni Palestinians from the al-Nayrab district as well as the former refugee camp Handarat. Liwa al-Quds is believed to be the largest loyalist auxiliary force operating in Aleppo.
