On Friday morning, the Lebanese Army carried out a vicious assault on the militants from the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” and the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the area of Jaroud ‘Arsaal, capturing the imperative Khaled Hill (Tal Khaled) after almost 4 hours of non-stop violence between these opposing forces.

However, despite the Lebanese Army’s success at Tal Khaled, contingents from ISIS and the Al-Nusra Front ambushed the Lebanese Army at the Raas Ba’albak Mountains, killing 2 soldiers before the Lebanese Army’s Central Command lost contact with the remaining men. According to a Lebanese Army source, the Central Command has yet to receive word on the fate of the soldiers in Raas Ba’albak.

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.
