Minutes ago inside the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, the U.S. backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) – alongside the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units (YPG) – imposed full control over the Younis Al-Saba’wi School and Jama’ Al-Istaqmat in the Al-Ashrafiyah District after a violent battle with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jaysh Al-Mujahiddeen.

In addition to capturing the two aforementioned sites, Jaysh Al-Thuwwar of the SDF captured several building blocks from the extremist rebel forces in the northern sector of the Al-Ashrafiyah District.

This successful counter-attack by the Syrian Democratic Forces comes just two days after the extremist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki attempted to recapture the Youth Housing Complex in the Bani Zayd District.

The Syrian Democratic Forces were backed by the Russian Air Forces this morning; these airstrikes provided the rebel forces with much needed cover against the extremists hiding in the condensed areas of Aleppo City.

Yesterday, the YPG and their allies captured the Salehiddeen Mosque in the Bani Zayd District after a 48 hour long battle that started with the extremist rebels attempting to retake the Youth Housing Complex.

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.
