The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the Desert Hawks and Syrian Marines – launched a powerful assault inside Palmyra (Tadmur) this morning, targeting the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defenses near the military airport and northern suburbs of this ancient city in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a battlefield correspondent that is embedded with the Syrian Arab Army, fierce clashes are taking place between the Syrian Armed Forces and the ISIS terrorists along several street blocks inside of Palmyra; however, there have been no reported gains as of yet.

Meanwhile, in the city’s western countryside, ISIS has claimed they have recaptured the Palmyra Castle (Qal’at Tadmur) and the Damascus-Pamyra after fierce clashes last night; however, almost all of these reports have been refuted by pro-government activists.

While ISIS claims this, the Syrian Armed Forces have reportedly seized all of the fields in the Palmyra Orchards after forcing the remaining terrorists to retreat to the southern perimeter of the Palmyra Military Airport.

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.
