On Saturday morning, the Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) attempted to storm the village of Felita in the Qalamoun Mountains, attacking a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) military garrison from the western perimeter of this rural area. However, despite the surprise attack on the SAA’s positions in Felita, the latter was able to repel the primary assault, killing scores of militants in the process of the Al-Nusra Front’s withdrawal after sustaining significant casualties.

The SAA – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah (Party of God) – continued their operations in the Al-Zabadani District of the Rif Dimashq Governorate, targeting a Liwaa Suqour Al-Zabadani (Falcons of Zabadani Brigades) hideout near the border of Lebanon on Saturday afternoon. According to a military source, 17 militants were killed and a dozen more were wounded during the battle.

The identified militants killed at Al-Zabadani are the following:

1. Ahmad Sa’adeh
2. Bilaal ‘Abdullah
3. Hamzeh Al-Teebaawa
4. Wa’el Kana’an

At Zibdeen, the SAA rescued a total of 150 civilians that were trapped inside this village in the East Ghouta, transporting them to safety after bearing months of violence in their neighborhoods. Many of the civilians were in good health; however, at least 20 people had to be transported to the hospital due to poor health.

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.
