24 hours after their attempted infiltration into the Al-Zahra Association Quarter, the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra) and “Harakat ‘Ahrar Al-Sham” (Liberation of the Levant Movement) withdrew their forces from this area in Aleppo City.

The militant forces sustained a significant amount of casualties during their attack and were unable to maintain their positions near Jamiyat Al-Maliya; this resulted in their subsequent withdrawal from the vicinity of the Air Force Intelligence building.

Meanwhile, in northeast Aleppo City, the battle for Al-Bureij has recently intensified after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kata’eb Al-Ba’ath (Ba’ath Battalion), and Hezbollah (Party of God) – carried out a large-scale assault in this area.

The SAA’s attack has just begun; however, it has yielded miniscule success, as the rebel forces continue to withstand the assault in Al-Bureij and the Stone Quarries.

Fighting resumed between the Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Aqsa” (Al-Aqsa Brigades) and the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) forces at Camp Handarat – the former still controls the northern entrance to the camp.

On Sunday morning, the Al-Nusra Front – in cooperation with Jaysh Al-Mujahedeen – launched an attack on the predominately Shi’i villages of Al-Zahra and Nubl, attempting to infiltrate from the neighboring Al-Maayer – the attack was repelled.

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.
