Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary) – took full control of Al-Sufayrah after fierce clashes with the Islamist rebel fighters from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) inside the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance began their assault at the town of Al-Sufayrah, where they were confronted by several factions of Islamist rebels; this developed into a violent confrontation that resulted in the pro-government forces taking full control of the town after they killed several enemy combatants from Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham and Harakat Nour Al-Deen Al-Zinki.

Following the capture of Al-Sufayrah, the Syrian Armed Forces and the Lebanese Resistance shifted their attention to the small town of Balas, where they were once again confronted by a large contingent of Islamist rebels; however, this battle is still ongoing, despite claims that it was captured.

The Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance have further advanced along this front, leaving only  Balas, Al-Shughaydilah and Al-Jumayrah left to capture before they can reach the imperative rebel stronghold of Al-Hadhir, which is located approximately 15km from the Idlib Governorate’s northeastern countryside.

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.
