It is all quiet on the eastern front of Aleppo as the hits keep coming for the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the Deir Hafer Plains, where the aforementioned terrorist group has lost its fourth village to the Syrian Armed Forces near the Kuweires Military Airport in the last 48 hours.

On Wednesday night, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), Hezbollah, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary), and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – continued their advance in the Kuweires Military Airport’s western countryside, attacking ISIS’ frontline defenses at the village of ‘Arbeed after capturing its neighbor to the west (Jadidah village) earlier in the day.

Following a series of intense firefights with ISIS, the Syrian Armed Forces, Lebanese Resistance, and their allies imposed full control over the village of ‘Arbeed, killing over 20 enemy combatants from the terrorist group while also seizing a large cache of weapons; these weapons included RPGs, assault rifles, ammunition, and IED material.

With the capture of ‘Arbeed, the Syrian Armed Forces have expanded their buffer-zone around the western countryside of the Kuweires Military Airport; however, it should be noted that the eastern perimeter of the base is still in danger due to ISIS’ presence around the village of Rasm ‘Abboud.

The Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command currently has its eyes set on the strategic Thermal Station that is located 6km west of the Kuweires Military Airport; if captured, they will have ISIS surrounded along the western flank of the Deir Hafer Plains.

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.
