The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – has launched a counter-attack on the militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham in the Al-Lajat area of northern Dara’a; this assault resulted in today’s capture of Tal Zalfa’ (var. Dhalfa) located in northern Sweida – just east of the Khalkhalah Airbase.

According to a military source in Sweida, the SAA and NDF killed 19 ISIS militants and captured another 8 fighters during the brief battle at Tal Zalfa’. The source further added that ISIS militants tried for weeks to expand their operations on the border of Sweida and Dara’a; however, they were unable to make any gains past Al-Lajat. This failure has allowed for the SAA to regroup and begin a counter-attack in this area.

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.
