Minutes ago in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the Desert Hawks Brigade, Hezbollah, and the Syrian Marines – liberated the small hilltop of Tal Areen near the Palmyra Archaeological Zone.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies liberated Tal Areen after advancing south from the large hilltop of Tal Mattar and forcing the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants to retreat east towards Palmyra’s western gates.

Clashes are still ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS at Jabal Qassoun’s western slope; however, the aforementioned terrorist group’s defenses are quickly crumbling amid the constant bombardment from land and air.

In addition to the firefights taking place near Palmyra, the Syrian Armed Forces are also advancing at Wadi Dhakara; this desert-village in northeast Homs has long been under ISIS’ control and continues to be a thorn in the side of the government forces.

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.
