BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered the town of Al-Shifouniyah after a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Islam in the eastern corridor of the East Ghouta region.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was able to infiltrate Jaysh Al-Islam’s defenses this afternoon, following the resumption of their field activity at 2:00 P.M. (Damascus Time).

The Syrian Army is now attempting to take control of Al-Shifouniyah, despite heavy resistance from Jaysh Al-Islam.

While the Syrian Army works to capture Al-Shifouniyah, their sappers are working to clear the town of Hawsh Dawahra of mines and IEDs that may have been left behind by Jaysh Al-Islam.

Hawsh Dawahra was captured last night, when the Tiger Forces launched a massive attack at dusk.

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.
