For the second time this month, the Syrian Armed Forces/Hezbollah and the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham/Jabhat Al-Nusra have agreed to a 48 hour ceasefire at the resort-city of Al-Zabadani and the two isolated towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya after two weeks of non-stop firefights at these violent fronts.

The ceasefire in Al-Zabadani is imperative for the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, as they are completely encircled inside this city and confined to the 1.5km of territory they control in the Al-Mahata, Al-Jami’yat and Al-Sultani Districts.

This ceasefire agreement in Al-Zabadani was facilitated by Iran and Turkey once again; it is imperative to note that there is no contingency to allow the Islamist rebel forces to stockpile provisions in order to continue this battle.

Meanwhile, at Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya inside the Idlib Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army and the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham agreed to participate in another 48 ceasefire to allow for the Syrian Red Crescent and the Syrian Government NGOs to deliver humanitarian aid inside these besieged Shi’i towns.

The Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra have repeatedly attempted to break into these aforementioned towns; however, they have been unsuccessful every time.

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.
