Violence engulfed the Kuweires Airbase for the third straight day in east Aleppo, as the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) continued their offensive to break into this isolated Syrian Arab Army (SAA) stronghold.

However, ISIS’ infiltration attempt was unsuccessful for the third time, resulting in another 32 of their fighters killed during their charge; this totals over 80 enemy combatants killed in three days.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) relentlessly targeted rebel positions in the villages of Handarat and Al-Malaah, launching over 20 airstrikes on Tuesday, while the SAA and National Defense Forces (NDF) pushed the enemy combatants south.

After an absence from the Al-Malaah front, the SAA and NDF have fought their way to the eastern farms from Handarat to the east; thus, expanding their control over the rural area west of the village.

The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – in coordination with Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen and Harakat ‘Ahrar Al-Sham – attacked the western corridor of Bashkoy before they were forced to withdraw west towards Rityan at nightfall.

Fierce firefights were also reported in the following areas on Tuesday: Khan Touman, Bani Zayd Quarter, Bustan Al-Basha Quarter, Al-‘Amariyah, Al-Zahra, Nubl, Duwayr Zeitoun, Kafr Hamra, Layramoun, and Al-Zahra Association Quarter.

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.
