A new and significant advance has been just made by the government forces in the eastern countryside of Homs as battles rage to retake the ancient city of Palmyra.

AMN reporter confirmed the recent advance, pointing out that the Syrian Army has imposed full control of the Bayarrat Gharbiyah area, located near the Damascus-Homs highway following heavy battles with the Islamic State.

A few kilometers to the north, the government troops entered the Jihar Gas Fields for the first time in weeks after overrunning the Islamic State’s first line of defense earlier today.

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.

Use IS’ own Ghazi tactics – keep the off balance and go.
