BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the commander of the Syrian Arab Army’s Shaheen Group of the Tiger Forces, Colonel Sleiman Shaheen, reported that the jihadist rebels in southern Idlib used chlorine gas against his troops at the town of Tal Maraq.

According to Colonel Shaheen, the jihadist rebels used the chlorine gas while trying to cutoff the Syrian Arab Army’s main supply line to the key town of Abu Dali this evening.

No further details have been released.

If true, this will be the first time during this battle for southern Idlib that chemical weapons have been deployed by either side.

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.
