The rebel militias “Jaysh Al-Islam” (Army of Islam) and Harakat ‘Ahrar Al-Sham (Liberation of the Levant Movement) have announced an offensive to capture the villages of Kafraya and Fou’aa from the possession of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Idlib Governorate.

Fou’aa is one of the few predominately Shi’i Muslim villages in northern Syria; however, unlike the villages of Zahra and Nubl in Aleppo, Fou’aa does not have a Hezbollah presence, but rather, a conglomerate of NDF and Kata’eb Al-Ba’ath fighters.

On Wednesday morning, firefights were reported at the Tile Factory on the outskirts of Fou’aa – the NDF were able to fend-off the attack and reestablish security around vicinity.

Syrian Opposition activists have announced the capture of Al-Zaghib – a village located in the Idlib countryside that is not far from the provincial capital.

Fierce clashes between the SAA’s 11th Tank Division and the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” were reported at the village of Tal Salmou located just south of the Abu Al-Dhuhour Airbase. The Al-Nusra Front has repeatedly infiltrated into this village, but they have been unable to maintain their positions for a long duration.

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.
