Over the last 24 hours, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade” have retreated from several sites inside Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains) after the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard launched a massive offensive in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian resistance) – began their offensive in Jabal Al-Turkmen by securing Al-Daghmashliyah after the Islamist rebels fought their way back inside of this village on Wednesday.

Following their success at Al-Daghmashliyah, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over the village of Ziwayk and its imperative hilltop before advancing to the nearby town of Shamaysah in Jabal Al-Turkmen.

In addition to their success at the aforementioned sites, the Syrian Armed Forces captured Point 1112, Point 482, Tal Thamamiyah, Kawa Al-Hatab, and Tal Thalatha in the Al-Zahiyah Mountains in northern Latakia after advancing north from the hilltop of Tal Ziwayk.

As a result of this advance by the Syrian Armed Forces, the Turkmen members of Jabhat Al-Nusra issued a distress call to their allies in Turkey (via social media) in order to motivate them to come to their aid in northern Latakia.

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.
