The Yarmouk Brigade (transliterated Arabic: Liwa’ al-Yarmouk), is a prominent Free Syrian Army rebel group operating in the Quneitra and Daraa governorates. It is named after the Yarmouk river which flows through the area. The group recognizes the SMC, has received support from Saudi Arabia and is one of the few units that received TOW missiles.[2] The group is responsible for the abduction of 21 UN soldiers in early March 2013.[1] The soldiers were released on 10 March 2013.[3] It joined the Southern Front on 14 February 2014.[4]
