BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 A.M.) – A large number of pro-government reinforcements arrived in the western countryside of Damascus tonight, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the reinforcements were comprised of soldiers from the 4th Mechanized Division and National Defense Forces (NDF) that were previously deployed near Damascus.

These reinforcements are tasked with aiding the Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd Brigade in their ongoing battle to clear the Beit Jinn pocket that is controlled by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

The Beit Jinn pocket has been nearly captured after several weeks of fighting; all that remains is one large hilltop and a few towns under Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham control.

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.
