On Friday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division and National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over the strategic hilltop of Tuloul Al-Khaduriyat in the east Homs countryside.

The Tiger Forces and their allies were able to liberate Tuloul Al-Khaduriyat after the Russian Air Force pulverized the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s defenses in the Jabal Bardeh region of east Homs.

This is the Syrian Arab Army’s first gains in the Jabal Bardeh region since their successful offensive at the ancient Assyrian city of Quraytayn in March.

Before liberating Tuloul Al-Khaduriyat, the Syrian Armed Forces were on the defense against the advancing Islamic State terrorists that were steadily pushing west.

  • 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.
