The Revolutionary Guard Corps (Liwa Haris al-Jamahiriya) or Jamahiriyyah Guard is a Libyan paramilitary elite unit that plays the role of key protection force of the regime of Muammar al-Gaddafi. Composed of 3,000 men hand-picked from Gaddafi's tribal group in the Surt region, the Guard is well armed, being provided with T-54 and T-62 tanks, APCs, MRLs, SA-8 and ZSU-23-4 SAMs taken from the army inventory. As of 2011, its commander was Hasan al-Kabir al-Gaddafi, a cousin of Libya's ruler, Muammar Gaddafi. - Source: Wikipedia
