Minutes ago in the Aleppo Governorate’s southeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade) and the Cheetah Forces “Team 3” – imposed full control over the strategic village of Rasm Al-Nafal after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to the media coordinator for Liwaa Al-Quds, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the village of Rasm Al-Nafal after killing several ISIS terrorists and destroying 4 of their vehicles with heavy artillery and superior tanks.

Rasm Al-Nafal was the first village captured by ISIS on Sunday night; and it set the stage for their imperative advance along the Khanasser-Aleppo Road, which has now been completely cutoff by ISIS and their allies from 2 different parts of the roadway.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are working vigorously to restore the points captured by ISIS 48 hours ago; however, this will likely take longer than expected, given the fact that the terrorist group has laid several roadside bombs and mines to slow down the government forces.

At the earliest, the Khanasser-Aleppo Road can be reopened by the end of this week; however, the supply route will still be cutoff from another point along the Sheikh Hilal-Ithriyah Road

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.
