The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard is on a roll inside the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside, capturing several sites from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the Turkmen Mountains (Jabal Al-Turkmen) this morning.

According to the battlefield correspondent Eyad Al-Hussein, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies imposed full control over Beit Sakr and the Electronic Battalion base in the Turkmen Mountains after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are advancing north towards the Turkish border, which is also the Islamists final supply route to the Latakia Governorate – firefights are ongoing near the strategic town of Al-Rabi’yah.

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.
