The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah (Party of God) – has secured another border-crossing into Lebanon at the village of Kafeer Yabous (var. Jdeidat Yabous) in the Qudsayah District. The loyalist forces were able to capture this border-crossing after fierce clashes with the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra) on Monday morning.

According to a military source, the capture of this border-village was imperative to the SAA’s contingency to obstruct all militants from entering the country via the Lebanese border. The source also added that a number of Al-Nusra Front militants were killed during the battle, including “’Abdullah Mansour Al-‘Adnani”, “IsHaq ‘Umar Moubussili”, “’Abdel-Aziz Jamaal ‘Izz al-Deen” and “Rifa’at ‘Abdel-Rahman ‘Issa”.

During a Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) bombardment in the Jobar District of the Rif Dimashq Governorate, a heavy bomb penetrated through the ground and unearthed a tunnel used by Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam). Details from the tunnel area have yet to be revealed due to intense fighting taking place in its vicinity.

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

  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
