For the last month and a half, the Islamist rebel faction “Ajnad Al-Sham” has launched a series of attacks on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defensive positions inside the imperative city of Darayya, where they gained considerable ground at the Darayya Association Quarter before the Syrian Armed Forces carried out their own counter-assault.

However, on Sunday morning, the Islamist group received bad news from Darayya after the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) conducted a number of airstrikes over this city in the West Ghouta (collection of farms in the Damascus countryside), killing Ajnad Al-Sham’s commander of field operations in southern Syria.

According to field reports from the Damascus countryside, the Ajnad Al-Sham commander – “Abu Al-‘Izz Saqr” – was killed alongside 12 of his armed combatants in Darayya after a Syrian Air Force Hind Helicopter attacked the aforementioned Islamist group’s compounds at the southwestern sector of the city on Sunday morning.

The field reports also included the list of the 12 Ajnad Al-Sham combatants that were killed by the Syrian Armed Forces on Sunday: Nizar Abu Al-‘Aadl, Ahmad Abu Raami, Abu Dhiyya Al-Bassam, Mohammad Abu ‘Antar, Ibrahim Abu Isma’eel, Ahmad Abu Saamer, Ibrahim Abu Suleiman, Zein Abu Bara’, ‘Umar Abu Yasseen, ‘Abdel-Rahman Abu Mohammad, Bassam Abu Asmar, and Anas Abu Ahmad.

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.
