Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 416th Regiment of the Republican Guard – backed by Hezbollah and the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – reportedly crossed the Barada River and entered the village of Al-Nashabiyah after a night of intense firefights with the extremist rebels.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah broke-through Faylaq Al-Rahman’s first line of defense at the Barada River and entered Al-Nashabiya, forcing the latter to retreat to the village center.

Faylaq Al-Rahman’s collapse at the Barada River will prove costly in the future as this area was considered almost impenetrable just four months ago.

If the extremist rebels lose Al-Nashabiyah, then the Syrian Armed Forces would be within striking distance of District 7; this area has been under the Syrian opposition’s control since 2012.

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.

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.
