The rebel-held city of Douma was awoken on Saturday morning with the tumultuous sound of mortar shells being fired by the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard onto Jaysh Al-Islam’s (Army of Islam) positions near Ar-Rayan Farms in the east.

Reports of amassing SAA soldiers at the outskirts of Douma were revealed to Al-Masdar News on Thursday; they would begin their attack 48 hours later from 2 specific areas – Ar-Rayan Farms from the east and Douma Farms from the north.

Fierce clashes took place this morning at Ar-Rayan Farms; this was reported by a source from the 105th Brigade – he would also confirm that loyalist forces were advancing towards the city of Douma after killing a total of 36 militants from Jaysh Al-Islam.

Yesterday, the leader of Jaysh Al-Islam, Zahran Alloush, was given the news of his brother’s death (Mahran Alloush) on Thursday, following the Syrian Arab Air Force’s (SAAF) powerful assault on the rebel stronghold of Douma; this aerial bombardment was a response to the barrage of mortars and rockets fired onto the populous in Damascus.

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.
