Following advances in the Deraa al-Bilad district yesterday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shifted its military attention to the embattled Al-Manshiyah neighborhood on Monday.

Subsequently, infiltration units of the SAA’s 5th Division of the Republican Guard seized 4 building blocks northwest of the Al-Manshiyah bakery in the morning hours, thus almost fully reversing advances secured by Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham and Southern Front in February.

The SAA offensive is supported by the National Defence Forces (NDF), 15th Division special forces and a Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary) contingent.

Al-Masdar News was unable to obtain information regarding casualties on either side; nevertheless, Syrian and Russian warplanes pounded militant-held areas of the city throughout the day.

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.
