BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:53 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out a large number of airstrikes over the eastern countryside of Aleppo on Tuesday, inflicting heavy damage on the Islamic State’s (ISIL) defenses in the Maskanah Plain.

Russian jets flying from the Hmaymim Airbase in southwest Latakia reached the Aleppo Governorate on Tuesday afternoon to deliver dozens of airstrikes against the Islamic State terror organization in the Maskanah Plain near the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

These airstrikes by the Russian Air Force come just 48 hours after the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces resumed their east Aleppo offensive.

The Tiger Forces are preparing to attack the strategic Jirah Airbase, which is located just north of the Maskanah Plain and directly east of the Euphrates River.

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.
