Due to a self-confessed shortness of manpower, the Assad regime relies on many militia groups as their ground-forces. Most are non-Syrian, many are Shia jihadis, paid for and commanded by Iran. These militia are highly sectarian. Following a programme known as “Shiaization”, they “Shia-ize” areas they occupy, focussing usually on the mosques. It is these foreign militia forces that make up regime ground-forces. Yet few know the full extent of their role on the ground in Syria.
