Jabhat Al-Nusra has suffered major setbacks in the battle for west Hama, as the recent arrival of Syrian Arab Army reinforcements have succored the civilian-led National Defense Forces (NDF)  counter the militants in the area.

The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – a special operations unit – began their attacks on militants in Khattab, forcing the latter the retreat northeast. During the fierce clashes, 22 militants were killed by the Tiger Forces.

The NDF were able to thwart an infiltration attempt by Jabhat Al-Nusra, east of the Mhardeh Power Plant. Jabhat Al-Nusra continues to fire multiple rockets daily at the Power Plant, obstructing civilian technicians from restoring electricity to the civilians inside the city.

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.
