BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:05 A.M.) – The second phase of the humanitarian exchange between Jaysh Al-Islam and the Syrian government occurred last night, a military report confirmed this morning.

According to the report, Jaysh Al-Islam released 28 people from their prisons, including several civilians and government workers that were kidnapped by the Islamist group during their attack on the town of ‘Adra in the East Ghouta region.

The Syrian Red Crescent Society oversaw phase two last night and they have helped play an integral role in the execution of this humanitarian exchange.

In the coming days, another batch of sick civilians will be transported from the besieged East Ghouta to government hospitals in Damascus for treatment.

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.
