DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:30 A.M.) – The Lebanese Army is on the verge of victory near the Syrian border after liberating more than 100km of territory with a 120km range, the Director of the Lebanese army’s Guidance Director, General Ali Qanso, said on Tuesday.

“We took over nearly 20 square kilometers, and we still have to liberate an equivalent area,” he continued.

“All terrorist posts have been demolished and other [terrorists] have fled,” he said.

“Nine posts have been destroyed, and weapons, munitions, and explosives have been seized,” he added.

“Our units are getting ready to carry on the operation, while taking into consideration the international humanitarian law,” he stressed.

General Qanso also indicated that an explosive device had detonated, leaving one dead and four injured.

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.
