Over the last 4 days, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard was immersed in a heated battle with the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) for control of the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airport in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus.

On Sunday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Damascus City – captured the strategic Helicopter Airfields and Helicopter Airbase that is situated at the southern part of Marj Al-Sultan; this paved the way for the pro-government forces to attack the main village that housed the Islamist commanders of Jaysh Al-Islam.

The following day, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade and the National Defense Forces imposed full control over the village of Marj Al-Sultan, capturing the entire command and control center, including the lead commander of Jaysh Al-Islam at the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airport – he is currently under arrest in Damascus.

All that was left for the Syrian Armed Forces to capture in the Marj Al-Sultan area of the East Ghouta was the main Helicopter Military Base that was situated to the north of the recently captured village.

Earlier today, the Syrian Armed Forces finally seized the Helicopter Military Base and the P-35 Radar Base that is situated to the north of Marj Al-Sultan; this led to the official liberation of the Marj Al-Sultan area and the Syrian Arab Army’s advance into the central region of the East Ghouta.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
