Forces of the Brave (Arabic: قوات الصناديد‎‎‎, Jaysh al-Sanadid or Quwwat al-Sanadid), is a militia formed by the Arab Shammar tribe to fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.[7] The tribe is based in Til Koçer and Jazaa regions of the Cizîr Canton of Rojava as well as in Iraq. The red colour in their flag represents blood while the yellow represents the light, calling themselves “marchers on the red death”.[8]

The Al-Sanadid Forces are affiliated with the governor of Jazirah district and tribal leader Hamidi Daham al-Hadi[9] (Humaydi Daham al Hadi[1]), also known as Hmeidi Daham al-Jarba.[10] The Forces are led by Hamidi's son Bandar al-Humaydi.[1]

History

The group participated in the clashes in the countryside of Hasakah Governorate in the first half of 2015.[9] The group's headquarters in Tell Hamis was targeted by a suicide bomber on 2 May 2015.[3]

It joined the Syrian Arab Coalition and Syrian Democratic Forces in late 2015.
