BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 A.M.) – For the second time in 72 hours, the jihadist rebels have used chemical weapons against the advancing Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in the southern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

According to a military report from Idlib, the jihadist rebels used chlorine gas on the advancing Syrian Army troops before retreating from their positions around the town of Khuwayn in southern Idlib.

The report added that several soldiers from the Taha Group of the Tiger Forces were exposed to the chlorine gas, requiring many to seek immediate medical attention at a local field hospital.

The jihadist rebels previously used chemical weapons near the town of Sinjar, resulting in the hospitalization of two soldiers.

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.
