On Friday morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham – in coordination with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, Jaysh Al-Islam, and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki – reportedly captured the small village of Al-Makalah after a series of intense firefights with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and their allies.

The village of Al-Makalah is situated just north of the recently captured town of Kafr Haddad and is located southeast of the strategic city of Khan Touman.

As of this morning, the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels are currently engaged in a violent firefight at Tal Dadeen, where Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham is attempting to impose full control of this hilltop village.

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.
