Last night, the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) – in close coordination with Jaysh Al-Thuwwar of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – imposed full control over the Bani Zayd Youth Housing Complex in Aleppo City after a fierce battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Jabhat Al-Shamiyah.

The YPG and SDF were able to fully seize the Bani Zayd Youth Housing Complex after almost 6 days of intense firefights.

Last week, the extremist rebels launched a counter-offensive to recapture this strategic site located near the Al-Ashrafiyah District of Aleppo City; however, they only managed to seize part of the facility.

All of the extremist rebel gains were officially reversed by the Kurdish forces in the past few days, including the Salahiddeen Mosque and several building blocks in the Al-Ashrafiyah District.

Currently, the extremist rebels have their backs against the wall inside the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate, thanks in large part to the YPG and SDF soldiers that are capturing several sites from these opposition fighters.

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.
