In a surprise counter-attack, the National Defense Forces (NDF) were given a boost from Hezbollah (Party of God) and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reinforcements that succored the entrenched fighters at Al-Malaah to regain more than half of Mazra’a Al-Malaah after fierce clashes with the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda “Jabhat Al-Nusra” on Sunday.

North of Al-Malaah, Jabhat Al-Nusra attempted to infiltrate the NDF’s frontline defenses for the 2nd straight day at Bashkoy; however, they were unable to advance past the outskirts of the town, as they faced heavy resistance from both the NDF and the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF).

As a contingent from Jabhat Al-Nusra tried to infiltrate into Bashkoy, their comrades to the north continued their attack on the NDF defenses in Duweir Al-Zeitoun; it was repelled following a long day of fighting between the two parties and the SAAF’s persistent bombing of Jabhat Al-Nusra positions.

The SAA recaptured the Sadkoub Fuel Company in the Al-Khalidiyyeh neighborhood of Aleppo City, killing 16 militants from the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) and destroying one of their vehicles mounted with a doshka.

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.

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.
