Moments ago in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – imposed full control over the hilltop village of Ruweisat Al-Daybat after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Ruweisat Al-Daybat is located southwest of Ruweisat Al-Hamidah and next to the villages of Kadeen and Al-Mughayriyah in Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains); this area was formerly under the control of Jabhat Al-Nusra and their allies for nearly three years before the pro-government forces seized the village this evening.

In Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains), the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade intensified their assault on Jabhat Al-Nusra’s defensive positions in the Firlalaq Forests, killing over 15 enemy combatants from the aforementioned Islamist group near the Turkish border on Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, southwest of the strategic city of Salma in Jabal Al-Akrad, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – backed by the National Defense Forces of Latakia City – continued their push towards the Al-Nuba Mountains, seizing several small hilltops from the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade” at the southern slopes.

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.
