Las Fuerzas Armadas Sirias declararon oficialmente hoy la liberación de una ciudad en la zona de la Guta Oriental luego de semanas de enfrentamientos con los grupos terroristas.

Hace tres días, la Guardia Republicana del Ejército Árabe Sirio (EAS) ingresó a Maydaa, implementando sofisticadas tácticas de guerrilla urbana contra los militantes de Jaish al-Islam -grupo respaldado por Arabia Saudita- dentro de esta villa.

Al quedar atrapados en el área occidental del pueblo, los rebeldes islamistas lanzaron un desesperado contraataque ayer, logrando hacer retroceder a las tropas gubernamentales algunos bloques de viviendas.

Sin embargo, esta mañana las tropas sirias respaldadas por una fuerte cobertura aérea lograron asegurar el control total de Maydaa luego de destruir todos los túneles y trincheras utilizadas por los insurgentes.

Para consolidar sus avances, las fuerzas de élite avanzaron algunos kilómetros hacia el oeste haciendo imposible cualquier contraataque en el corto plazo.

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.
