The Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces contingent “Qawat Suqour Al-Sahra” (Desert Hawks) has taken control of the eastern Homs village of Al-Mashayrafat after fierce clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) late Saturday night.

Sources were able to confirm that the entire village is under the control of the Syrian Government; however, battle details were not released to Al-Masdar News as of yet.

With the capture of Al-Jazal Oil Fields and Al-Mashayrafat in east Homs, ISIS is losing substantial ground in central Syria, as the SAA and National Defense Forces (NDF) continue to push them further north towards the Ar-Raqqa Governorate.

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.
