The Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (a branch of the Tiger Forces) – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – carried out a night raid on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) frontline defenses at the village of ‘Ayn Sabil after they successfully recaptured the nearby town of Al-Salihiyah in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a military source, the Cheetah Forces attacked an ISIS contingent at 12:30 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Thursday, striking the terrorist group along the southern perimeter of ‘Ayn Sabil, while helicopters from the Russian Air Force provided them coverage during their advance along this desolate territory that sits approximately 13km from the Kuweires Military Airport.

Recently, the Cheetah Forces – under the direct command of Colonel Lu’ayy Sleitan – have been redeployed to the east Aleppo front after spending 40 days inside the Al-Ghaab Plains of west Hama – their primary objective is to lift the two year long siege on the Kuweires Military Airport.

On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – alongside the predominately Palestinian “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigades) and National Defense Forces (NDF) – continued their assault on the Scientific Research Building inside the Al-Rashideen District of west Aleppo – firefights have restarted this morning.

Elsewhere, 6 members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) were arrested by Syrian Security Forces on the Khanasser-Aleppo Highway after a large cache of weapons was discovered in two vehicles at a checkpoint.

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.
