Moments ago in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – imposed full control over the strategic village of Arafat in the Jubb Al-Ahmar area of the Prophet Jonah Mountains (Jabal Nabi Younis).

The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies captured the strategic village of Arafat after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra, the Free Syrian Army’s “Liwaa Suqour Al-Ghaab”, and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham on Tuesday morning.

In addition to their success at the village of Arafat, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over the villages of Raweesat Sheikhou and Katf Al-Salat in the Prophet Jonah Mountains, killing several militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra, the Free Syrian Army, and Harakat Ahrat Al-Sham in the process of this successful assault in northeastern Latakia.

As a result of their success this afternoon in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies are now within 20km of the Turkish border and less than 15km away from the imperative city of Jisr Al-Shughour.

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.
