BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been steadily advancing through the East Ghouta, seizing large parts of this region from the Islamist rebels.

Following another big advance in the East Ghouta on Monday, the Syrian Army officially split apart the Islamist-held territories into three pockets, leaving Jaysh Al-Islam completely isolated in the north.

The Syrian Army is now working to clear the strategic Harasta suburb, which has been under the control of Faylaq Al-Rahman and their allies for quite a long time.

Once Harasta is cleared of militants, the Syrian Army will shift their attention north towards the Jaysh Al-Islam stronghold and East Ghouta region’s largest town, Douma.

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.
