Yesterday morning, the Russian Air Force carried out a powerful airstrike inside the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside, targeting a large gathering of Islamist rebel fighters from Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Jaysh Al-Islam, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham near the strategic town of Al-Zorba, which is located along the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway).

Among the Islamist rebels killed by the Russian airstrike on Saturday morning was the Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham leader, Ahmad Abu Al-Bara’a – the latter was considered a prominent field commander that fought several battles inside the Aleppo and Idlib Governorates of northern Syria.

Abu Al-Bara’a was killed just 24 hours after the Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) commander and founder – Zahran Alloush – was killed by the Syrian Air Force inside the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus.

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.
