The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF)  and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawk Brigades) – have taken control of Khattab in the eastern part of the Homs Governorate; this village is located south of Al-Salamiyyah in southeast Hama and north of Jabal Al-Sha’ar.

According to a military source, the SAA and NDF liberated this area from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) after launching multiple attacks on the latter in eastern Homs.

The source added that 2 dozen militants from ISIS were killed during the liberation of Khattab, including 3 enemy combatants identified as “Rami ‘Ismaa’eel Fakhouri” (Syrian), “Mohammad Hussein Abu Zayd” (Syrian), and “Safwan Ahmad Al-Ghareeb” (Yemeni).

Violent clashes were also reported in the Homs Governorate at Talbeiseh, Ar-Rastan, Taldou, Jabal Al-Sha’ar, and the Houla Plains.

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.
