One week after the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched their third offensive this year at the provincial capital of Al-Hasakah, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies beat back the terrorist group’s assault and restored all security points around the city’s southern perimeter that were under attack by the militants.

With their backs against the wall on Friday, the Syrian Armed Forces had no choice but to go on the offensive near the Panorama Roundabout, as the militants from ISIS were only a few hundred meters from the provincial capital’s southern entrance, leaving the city in danger of a possible infiltration from the terrorist group’s combatants.

Finally, on Saturday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces sprung to life in Al-Hasakah, when they simultaneously stormed ISIS’ defensive positions at the Al-Ahdath Juvenile Prison, the Al-Hasakah Power Plant, and a number of villages southeast of the provincial capital; this resulted in the recapture of the aforementioned sites and the withdrawal of all ISIS’ combatants from the southern perimeter.

As the sun rose on Sunday morning, throngs of civilians rushed to Al-Hasakah’s city-center, where they held a massive demonstration in support of the Syrian Armed Forces for their gallantry and victory against the militants of ISIS during the previous night’s battle.

The Syrian Armed Forces that defended the provincial capital of Al-Hasakah are as followed: 154th Artillery Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the 123rd Tank Brigade of the 3rd Armored Division, the 5th Brigade of the Syrian Border Guard, the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Al-Ba’ath Battalions, and the Gozarto Protection Forces (Assyrian militia).

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.
