DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:40 P.M.) – After several hours of intense clashes, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured Bir Qassab area in eastern Damascus countryside on Tuesday afternoon, expelling the militants of US-backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) factions.

This comes as a development of previous SAA success two weeks ago, when government troops captured Tal Dakwah hilltop.

Russian Air Force played an important role in today’s success of government forces, having been conducting non-stop airstrikes since early morning.

  • 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.
