Not all pro-government militias which fight alongside the Syrian army are made up of Shi’ite fighters. A number of formidable Sunni militias fighting on the side of the Damascus government do exist and they play an important role in combating terrorists throughout Syria. In this category can be found two large paramilitaries made up of Sunni Palestinians.

Liwa al-Quds) and the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) are two militias which fight alongside the Syrian army. All are made up of Syrian Palestinian citizens who are Sunnis.

The Jerusalem Brigade was formed in 2013 and has fought with the Syrian army throughout northern Syria since then. The militia played a very important part in the defense of Aleppo and in the last operation to liberate the city.

The Palestine Liberation Army has engaged terrorists alongside the Syrian army in south-west Syria. It has been part of battles around Damascus city and the greater Damascus provincial area as well as in the the far southern province of Dara'a.

Both militias have fought all the same enemies as the Syrian army including the so-called Islamic State (also called IS, ISIS or ISIL), the al-Nusra Front (now called Haiat Tahrir al-Sham) and the Free Syrian Army.

The Jerusalem Brigade is thought to have at least 5,000 fighters (the group claims that it has almost twice this number) whilst the PLA is said to have 6,000 fighters (both statistics are according to 2017 estimates).
