The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has had a rough 48 hours inside the Aleppo Governorate’s northern countryside, as the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – has taken control of four imperative sites located on the outskirts of the provincial capital .

On Sunday afternoon, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the Aleppo Free Trade Zone, the Aleppo Juvenile Detention Facility, Jabal ‘Antar (mountaintop), and the town of Kafr Tunah after intense firefights with ISIS that resulted in the aforementioned terrorist group’s withdrawal to the nearby village of Fafeen in the northern Aleppo countryside.

The following day, the Syrian Armed Forces advanced to the village of Fafeen, where they were confronted by a large contingent from the terrorist group that refused to yield any territory to the encroaching enemy; however, the Syrian Armed Forces found success at the eastern perimeter of the village before sundown on Monday.

With the Syrian Armed Forces advancing to the village of Fafeen, ISIS is facing a serious threat at the recently captured Aleppo Infantry Academy, which is located on the fringes of the Sheikh Najjar Industrial District.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are positioned at the southern perimeter of the Aleppo Infantry Academy; if Fafeen is captured, they will have the aforementioned site surrounded at two different flanks (western and southern flanks).

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.
