The Syrian Arab Army’s 47th Brigade of the Special Forces (Al-Qawat Al-Khassa)  – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Assyrian militia “Sootooro” – has taken control of 13 towns in the matter of 24 hours inside the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

According to a military source in Al-Hasakah, the 47th Brigade was able to capture to towns of Farfarat, Tal Ahmad, Khirbat Noura, Tafeehiyah, Khaznat, Sawama’ Al-Tawareej, Bayzari, Khirbat Zouman, Tal Assoud, Maqbrat Tal Assoud, Al-Bwaab, Tal Al-Fawqaani, and Tal Hamza from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

With the YPG’s capture of Tal Hamees and Tal Brak, the Al-Hasakah Governorate has become ISIS’ biggest challenge in Syria, as their vital supply lines flow through the province and into Ar-Raqqa, Homs, and Deir Ezzor.

The SAA and their allies are currently positioned north of Tal Hamees and Tal Brak; they will focus on southern Al-Hasakah and Jabal ‘Abdel-‘Aziz (‘Abdel-‘Aziz  Mountains).

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.
