Moments ago in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Hezbollah, and Harakat Al-Nujaba – imposed full control over the strategic village of Al-Qarassi after almost two weeks of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham.

According to a battlefield journalist that is embedded with Hezbollah in southern Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies seized Al-Qarassi after killing over 30+ enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham; this high death toll has forced the aforementioned Islamist rebel groups to retreat west in order to decrease their casualties.

With Al-Qarassi fully under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are now in prime position to strike the strategic town of Khan Touman; this aforementioned town is located along the strategic Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway) that flows through both the provincial capital of Aleppo and Idlib.

Al-Masdar News has received several preliminary reports from the southern Aleppo front this morning; however, many of these reports have yet to be verified and will be posted once they are confirmed by our military analysts.

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.
