Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 20th and 128th Brigades of the 1st Armored Division – in coordination with Hezbollah and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – captured the strategic hill that overlooks Jaroud Jarajeer at Qurnah Shab’ah, killing a number of enemy combatants from the Syrian Al-Qaeda organization “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their affiliates before the latter was forced to withdraw to the northern countryside.

Following the capture of Qurnah Shab’ah, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance over-powered the retreating Jabhat Al-Nusra militants at Wadi Al-Khashiyah, resulting in the latter’s withdrawal from this valley near Jaroud Jarajeer after a short skirmish that lasted no more than twenty minutes on Monday evening.

The success at Jaroud Jarajeer comes three days after the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah cleared the entire Jaroud Faleeta area of Jabhat Al-Nusra combatants; this was an imperative operation because the Al-Qaeda offshoot used the border-crossing at this town to smuggle weapons and reinforcements to their entrenched militants combatting the Syrian Armed Forces and the Lebanese Resistance in the Qalamoun Mountains of Syria.

In addition to their success at Jaroud Jarajeer on Monday, Hezbollah continued their powerful assault on the militants of Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the ‘Arsal Barrens of the Beqa’a Governorate, where they asserted their control over a number of points that included Wadi Al-Turkman, Wadi Al-Qaseir, ‘Aqbah Al-Qaseerah, Wadi Al-Siyari, Wadi Al-Hariqi, and Wadi Al-Taneen.

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.
