Moments ago in the Homs Governorate’s southeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Sadad and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – imposed full control over Jabal Maheen (Maheen Mountains) after an intense firefight this morning with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Jabal Maheen overlooks the strategic town of Maheen and it is one of the most important sites along the Maheen-Sadad Road that was under ISIS’ control last week.

With Jabal Maheen under their control, the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade is now at the northern gates of the town; this leaves ISIS in a bad position because the pro-government forces have the high ground.

The Syrian Armed Forces are now preparing for the final assault on the strategic town of Maheen – there is no set time or date for this attack.

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.
