BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 A.M.) – A large convoy of Syrian Marines departed from the coast, Thursday, to the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, Syrian journalist Bashar ‘Osman (var.’Uthman) reported.

According to ‘Osman, the Syrian Marines left the Latakia Governorate for east Homs, as they join the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in their battle to retake the territory they lost near the strategic city of Al-Sukhnah.

Video footage of this convoy leaving Latakia was released by ‘Osman on Thursday; it shows several vehicles filled with marines traveling through a small village.

Over the last five days, the Syrian Arab Army has been immersed in a fierce battle outside of Al-Sukhnah, as they attempt to put an end to the Islamic State’s (ISIS) large-scale offensive.

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.
