The People’s Protection Units (YPG) attacked a large Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) contingent located west of Ras Al-‘Ayn at the village of Al-Mabrouka, killing scores of militants as they progressed towards Tal Khanzeer (Pig Hill). Despite claims by ISIS media sources that the YPG is losing ground in Ras Al-‘Ayn, a Kurdish military source has confirmed that this is false and he further added that the YPG is in full control of the city.

In Kobane, the YPG continued their push in the southwestern perimeter of the city, cutting off ISIS militants from their entrenched fighters in the east. Also in the city, the YPG was able to destroy an ISIS hideout on 48th Street that was used primarily as a snipers den. Among the dead ISIS fighters on 48th Street was the ISIS field commander in Kobane “Abu Yamaan Al-Shaami” (ID pending).

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.
