Over the weekend, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – led by Major General Issam Zahreddine –  and the Shaytat tribesmen  returned to the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate after their one month long deployment to Al-Hasakah City in early July.

Following their arrival, the SAA’s 104th Brigade – alongside the Shaytat tribesmen – were given no vacation, as they joined forces with the SAA’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division in order to restart their offensive to capture the strategically located city of Mohassan that sits on the Deir Ezzor-Al-Mayadeen Highway.

The Syrian Armed Forces began their assault on Sunday morning, when the 104th Brigade – in coordination with the Shaytat tribesmen and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – attacked the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) to the south of the Al-Ta’im Oil Fields, capturing approximately four square miles of territory in the process.

In addition to their assault near the Al-Ta’im Oil Fields, the Syrian Armed Forces (primarily the 137th Brigade) cleared the eastern farms in the town of Al-Jafra, killing over 20 enemy combatants from the terrorist group, including “Abu Malek Al-Tounisi” (Tunisian), Mazen ‘Umar Al-Radwan, Noures Khaled Khodor, Walid Yousif Al-Mohammad, Qassem Mohammad Al-Bustani, Zaid Ghassan Al-Hosni, ‘Abdullah ‘Abdel-Rahman Khaldoun, and Mohammad Da’oud Fawzi.

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.
