On Thursday morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – continued their advance in the southern countryside of the Tiyas Military Airbase, capturing more territory from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS)in the Al-Hayl Mountains and the Al-Abyad Valley of east Homs.

The joint Syrian Armed Forces launched their assault on the terrorist group’s positions outside of the Al-Hayl Castle, where they would later impose control over a number small hilltops along the Al-Hayl Mountains before sundown on Thursday night.

In addition to their successful assault in the Al-Hayl Mountains, the Syrian Armed Forces advanced deep into the heart of Wadi Al-Abyad (White Valley), killing over 20 enemy combatants, while destroying five armored vehicles mounted with a variety of anti-aircraft machine guns.

As of Thursday night, the Syrian Armed Forces have created a large buffer-zone around the southern perimeter of the Tiyas Military Airbase and the T-4 Pumping Station that stretches as far south as Jabal Al-Hayl.

Meanwhile, north of Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) pounded ISIS’ positions near the Ancient Quarries, reportedly killing 28 armed combatants from the terrorist group – clashes between the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and ISIS followed the multitude of airstrikes from the air force.

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.
