The Syrian Arab Air Force, alongside their counterparts from the Russian Air Force, have been lighting up the western Raqqa countryside with non-stop airstrikes for the last two weeks as their ground units attempt to advance towards the strategic Tabaqa Airport.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Air Force struck a command-and-control center that belonged to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) near the Tabaqa Military Airport, killing several combatants from the aforementioned terrorist group in the process.

According to the Syrian Air Force command, the airstrike killed the top Islamic State emir of the Tabaqa Military Airport.

The Islamic State emir of the Tabaqa Military Airport was identified as the Syrian national, Ahmad Kafrouma.

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.
