Syrian Civil War

The Sham Legion (Arabic: فيلق الشام‎, Faylaq al-Sham), is an alliance of Sunni Islamist rebel groups formed in order to consolidate the strength of non-al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamists during the Syrian Civil War. The alliance was formed from 19 different groups, some of which were previously affiliated with the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and Shields of the Revolution Council.

On 26 April 2015, along with other major Aleppo based groups, the Sham Legion established the Fatah Halab joint operations room.

Between 2014 and 2016, the Sham Legion was at one point a rebel group vetted by the United States and received BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles.
