The Khanasser Highway that provides the Syrian Government and the Armed Forces access to the Aleppo Governorate was under attack for two straight months after the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Harakat ‘Ahrar Al-Sham captured the village of Al-Rashadiyah in the southeastern part of the province.

However, on Tuesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” – were able to recapture the imperative village of Al-Rashadiyah near the Khanasser Highway; thus, alleviating much of the threat the Islamist groups posed to the Syrians utilizing this roadway.

With the SAA’s recapture of Al-Rashadiyah, the Islamist militias turned their focus to the Aleppo International Airport, where they launched a fierce assault onto the neighboring Nayrab Palestinian Refugee Camp.

Despite the intensity of the attack, the fighters from Liwaa Al-Quds and the NDF were able to fend off the Jabhat Al-Nusra offensive for the third straight day.

Pro-rebel social media activists reported the capture of the Air Force Intelligence Building in the Al-Zahra Association Quarter on Monday; however, sources at the Al-Zahra Quarter have confirmed to Al-Masdar News that all news of its capture have been fabricated.

On Tuesday, Syrian Arab Army soldiers posed for a photograph in front of the orphanage that pro-rebel social media activists claimed was under Nusra control; this was also followed by an Al-Manar News crew filming the area with the SAA.

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.
