Moments ago in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite special operations division known as the “Tiger Forces” – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City and Al-Salamiyah; Hezbollah; and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – imposed full control over the village of Nasrallah after a violent confrontation with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the northern outskirts of the Kuweires Military Airport.

According to a battlefield journalist that is embedded with the Tiger Forces near the Kuweires Military Airport, the Syrian Armed Forces cleared the entire area surrounding the ICARDA Farms; this paved the way for the pro-government forces to seize the village of Nasrallah this evening from ISIS.

With the village of Nasrallah under their full control, the Tiger Forces and their allies are now in position to cross into the Al-Baab Plains after a three year long absence from this front in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside; this area is deeply entrenched with ISIS combatants as their strongholds of Menbaj and Al-Baab are located in this region.

South of the Kuweires Military Airport, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces and their allies are currently combatting ISIS at the strategic hilltop village of Tal Al-Ahmar; if captured, the airbase will be completely secure at its southern perimeter.

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.
