The militants of the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) – in cooperation with the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Al-Nusra Front) – have restarted their offensive in the towns of Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa north of the provincial capital of Idlib.

According to a military source in Idlib, the militant offensive near Idlib City is geared to take control of the roads leading to the latter and to cutoff Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa from their main supply routes.

The offensive is being launched from Al-Huriyah and Al-Batitiyah from the west; Ram Hamdan from the north; and Binnish to the east – if successful, the city of Idlib will be besieged from three perimeters.

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.
