The Sword of the Levant Brigades (Arabic: الوية سيف الشام‎; Alwiyat Saif al-Sham) was a Syrian rebel group formed in the Rif Dimashq Governorate, but operated in the Quneitra and Daraa governorates. The group received U.S.-made BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles.[1] On 13 April 2015, it joined a number of other Southern Front member groups in condemning the al-Nusra Front's ideology and discontinuing all forms of cooperation with it,[3] though it seems that they have retracted from this position as they have joined the al-Nusra-led group Jaish al-Haramoun.
