On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces – in coordination with the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – carried out a powerful assault in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, resulting in the destruction of a number of armored vehicles and enemy hideouts.

The Syrian Armed Forces began their assault by targeting Jabhat Al-Nusra’s (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) defensive positions in Salma’s east district, killing 11 enemy combatants before they advanced to the eastern orchards inside this city located in northeastern Latakia.

Following their assault in Salma, the Syrian Armed Forces launched a powerful assault on the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Nusra’s positions inside the village of Mureij; this attack resulted in the death of 38 enemy combatants, all of whom, were reportedly foreigners from either Saudi Arabia, Chechnya, Dagestan, Kuwait, Malaysia, and Lebanon.

In addition to the death of 38 enemy combatants inside Mureij, the Syrian Armed Forces also destroyed a weapons depot and militant hideout that was used by the Islamist rebel fighters to conduct attacks on the SAA and NDF units in this area.

Fierce clashes between the Syrian Armed Forces and Jabhat Al-Nusra were also reported at the towns of Ghannam and Al-Rubiyah in northern Latakia.

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.
