The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in cooperation with contingents from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah (Party of God) – has captured the strategic Al-Mahaadhiyyeh Orchards located near the imperative villages of Sa’sa and Hassnou on the border of the Al-Quneitra and Rif Dimashq Governorates in southwest Syria.

The SAA attack on Al-Mahadhiyyeh Orchards was conducted around 7 A.M. on Wednesday morning and lasted for almost 8 hours before the militants from the Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) withdrew from their positions in this rural area. According to a military source, at least 15 militants from the Al-Nusra Front were killed during this operation, including ‘Ammar Mohammad Al-‘Ismaa’eel, “Abu Baraa’ Al-Jazrawi” (Saudi), Mustafa Ibrahim Al-Sinawi, and ‘Abdel-Lateef ‘Ali Al-Khaled.

The success at Al-Mahadhiyyeh has led to the SAA’s advance towards the imperative village of Sa’sa; if captured, could lead to the counter-offensive in the Al-Quneitra 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.
