DAMASCUS, SYRIA (06:30 PM) – The Palestinian militia known as al-Quds Brigade is reportedly heading to the frontlines in South Idlib in order to support the rapidly advancing Syrian offensive against terrorist forces in the area.

The al-Quds Brigade, also known as Liwa al-Quds, is a predominantly Sunni Palestinian armed militia force that is composed mostly of Palestinians living in the al-Nayrab district of Aleppo and the Handarat camp. The Brigade played a dominant role during the Battle of Aleppo, where is was the single largest auxiliary force assisting the Syrian Arab Army in liberating the city.

By relocating to southern Idlib, the Palestinian auxiliary force seeks to support the Syrian advances against Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS, formerly known as the Al-Nusra Front) and other rebel gangs. The armed forces of Syria have been making massive advances in Idlib in the past days, cutting a bloody path through the rebel positions.

It is expected that the al-Quds Brigade will be employed mostly in the safeguarding and defending of recently liberated towns, and the prevention of possible HTS counterattacks in the rear of the ongoing Syrian offensive.
