The Army of Free Tribes (Arabic: جيش احرار العشائر‎, Jaysh Ahrar al-Ashayer), previously called the Southern Command and the Collective of Free Southern Tribesmen, is a Syrian rebel coalition affiliated with the Free Syrian Army and was headed by brigadier general Ibrahim Fahad Al Naimi. The group was supported by Jordan.

History[edit]

The Southern Command of the Free Syrian Army was established on 5 September 2014 in the Quneitra Governorate.[1] The group's commander, Brig. Gen. Ibrahim Fahad al-Naimi, threatened to arrest any rebel deserting the group. [4]

It was reported on 3 November 2014 that the Southern Command convinced the al-Nusra Front to leave Ghadir al-Bustan and al-Qseibah villages in the Quneitra Governorate, some miles away from the Golan Heights.[5]
