On Wednesday afternoon in the eastern countryside of the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over the strategic hilltop of Tal Tabarah Al-Deibah after a long battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade and their allies were able to liberate Tal Tabarah Al-Deibah after advancing from the recently captured hilltop of Tal Hikmat in the ‘Aqayrbat countryside.

With the liberation of Tal Tabarah Al-Deibah on Wednesday, the Syrian Armed Forces have effectively pushed 7 km east into the ISIS heartland, which includes most of the territory between the Al-Salamiyah District of Hama and the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

The village of ‘Aqayrbat is the location of ISIS’ headquarters in the east Hama countryside; if captured, they will likely retreat to the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s western border.

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.

You have a very big buffer around ithriya khanasser too. 400 died in the failed offensive alone. 500 died in Palmyra. 600 in a failed offensive in Deir Ezzor. Oh dear.

600 bodies in Palmyra and that’s not even courting the ones they took back to Raqqa and Bab

For a not-syrian, it is impossible to follow these news on a map. No access to a sensible map.
