DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:45 P.M.) – Following numerous swift gains earlier in the day, the Kurdish-led ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) proceeded to capture the entire Alexandria suburb in the southern sector of Tabqa city on Saturday.

In addition, the US-backed militia seized Ayed Al-Saghir village directly west of Tabqa.

Around 50 ISIS insurgents were neutralized on Saturday alone in a large-scale offensive which began overnight with US choppers swarming the city and its outskirts.

Roughly 15% of the Islamic State bastion has now been brought under Kurdish control. The military operation to liberate Tabqa city officially marks stage four of the Euphrates Wrath offensive, a source embedded with the SDF told Al-Masdar News.

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.
