Minutes ago in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – imposed full control over Point 853 at Palmyra’s western flank after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to a military source in the Palmyra countryside, Point 853 is located east of Hill 800 in Jabal Hayyal and 600 meters north of Wadi Qadhat.

Currently, the most intense firefights between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS are taking place at Jabal Hayyan, which is located to the west of Jabal Qassoun and the Palmyra Archaeological Zone.

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.
