The bad news keeps coming for the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham as they concede another set of villages to the combined forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Hezbollah, National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Iraqi/Iranian paramilitary units in the southern Aleppo countryside.

Immediately following the loss of the strategic town of Jabal Al-‘Eiss to the pro-government forces, the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki had their backs against the ropes at the large village of Banes in southern Aleppo; this unfortunate situation for the Islamist rebels caused them to lose the aforementioned village after the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah attacked its northern perimeter.

To make matters worse for the Islamist rebels, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance pushed their way into the nearby village of Rasm Al-Sahreej, where they were confronted by a small contingent of fighters from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jabhat Al-Nusra.

With two more villages under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies have now captured over 370 square kilometers of territory from the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra since early October of this year.

  • 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.

Good news, still I would argue SAA and allies should re-eforce Nothern Hama front, that is where the rebels are betting on to advance, stop Northern Hama rebel offensive, that is more important.
