BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:15 P.M.) – The so-called Islamic State (ISIL) is taking out their frustrations on civilians in the Deir Ezzor Governorate following their recent string of losses to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

ISIL terrorists chose to target the government-held district of Harabish in the southern part of the provincial capital, Thursday, killing and wounding several civilians after firing a large number of missiles towards the area.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, at least 7 civilians were killed and 29 others were wounded by the ISIL attack.

The wounded are being transported to a nearby hospital for immediate care.

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.
