Shabiha (also spelled Shabeeha or Shabbiha) , is an Arabic word used mainly in Syria roughly translating to thugs or bullies. The word has gained international notoriety since the beginning of the 2011 Syrian uprising, due to its use to describe armed men in civilian clothing who assault protesters against the regime of Bashar Al-Assad. It is widely believed that the shabiha are hired goons of the regime, including some members of the security forces. - Source: Wikipedia
