Following a rough 48 hour battle inside the northern countryside of the Al-Ghaab Plains, the Syrian Arab Army’s 87th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division – in coordination with the 45th Regiment of the 1st Division, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Qawat Al-Nimr (Tiger Forces) – launched a counter-assault at the strategically located towns of Qarqour and Al-Misheek, capturing several points from the conglomerate of Al-Qaeda affiliated militias.

The Syrian Armed Forces were able to bait the two largest factions in Jaysh Al-Fateh – Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – to push too far into the Al-Ghaab Plains, resulting in the aforementioned Islamist militant groups being overstretched on the Qarqour and Al-Misheek fronts.

As a result of Jaysh Al-Fateh’s overstretched fighters, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to take advantage of this apparent folly in order to recapture the town of Al-Misheek; which later paved the way for them to reenter Qarqour and recapture most of the town after fierce clashes with Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jund Al-Aqsa, and Ajnad Al-Sham.

To the west of Qarqour, the Syrian Armed Forces are currently in the process of pushing out Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabaht Al-Nusra from the villages of Al-Buhsa, Safsaafa, and Fawru, as they attempt to recapture their lost territory from these aforementioned Islamist factions.

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.
