BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered the Ummal District of Deir Ezzor after advancing from the nearby Industrial Zone, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army entered the Ummal District after overrunning the front-lines of the Islamic State (ISIS) near the Industrial Zone axis.

Once Tiger Forces entered the Ummal District, they quickly seized the municipal post office and imposed fire control over the Al-Safa Mosque.

According to the military source, the Syrian Army is pushing towards the municipal stadium in a bid to encircle the strategic Old Airport District, which is considered one of the Islamic State’s last strongholds in Deir Ezzor.

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.
