Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – were able to repel the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) attack on the Al-Sha’ar Gas Fields, forcing them to withdraw towards the small village of Al-Bayarat in Palmyra’s (Tadmur) western countryside.

As a result of the ISIS withdrawal, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade and their allies reentered the village of Al-Bayarat, attacking the terrorist group’s frontline defenses at the northern flank.

In addition to reentering Al-Bayarat, the Syrian Arab Army also reentered the village of Al-Dawa in Palmyra’s western countryside after a brief hiatus due to the large-scale ISIS offensive in western Palmyra.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS are deadlocked in a tug-of-war battle for control of the desert villages around Palmyra – the Syrian Arab Army is still 2 km outside of the ancient city, but they have made no serious attempt to advance past Ancient Quarries.

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.
