After the liberation of Al-Maleeha in the East Ghouta, the Syrian Arab Army did not wait long to continue their success in this strategic area. Around 4 P.M. Damascus Time, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard stormed the rebel stronghold of ‘Ayn Tarma, as the Syrian Air Force provided much needed cover-fire for the advancing troops. A violent firefight ensued and continued until 10:30 P.M. Damascus time, when the 105th entered the imperative town and positioned themselves near the ‘Ayn Tarma Petrol Station in the southwest corner of the town.

At 6:30 A.M. on Sunday morning, the rebels found themselves seeking shelter from persistent Syrian Air Force bombardments that continued for at least 3 hours. The 105th Brigade was able to fight its way to the ‘Ayn Tarma Secondary School, which forced the rebels to withdraw west of ‘Ayn Tarma to their stronghold at Jobar. The Syrian Arab Republic flag was hoisted above the town at 4:45 P.M., 48 hours after the liberation of Al-Maleeha.

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.
