It is a pro-government, pro-Assad, Syrian-armed operating in northwest Syria, claiming a Marxism-Leninism ideology. [Not to be confused with anti-Assad Syrian opposition groups or the "Syrian National Resistance".]

İskenderun (Arabic: إسكندرونة), historically known as Alexandretta and Scanderoon, is a municipality and district of Hatay Province, Turkey. After France handed over the district (renamed Hatay) to Turkey in 1939, İskenderun was replaced by Antioch (Antakya) as provincial capital but grew rapidly through improvement in its port facilities, its choice as a military center and Turkish naval base on the Mediterranean Sea. Essentially, the PFLSI wanted to recapture this former Syrian district now possessed by Turkey.
