The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard has taken advantage of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) recent transfer of fighters to the Al-Anbar front in Iraq by attacking their positions at Sakr Island in the Deir Ezzor Governorate; this resulted in the SAA taking control of 80 percent of the island, including most of the Al’Aleesh District in the north.

At the Al-‘Arfa District, the 104th and 137th Brigades carried out a raid on an ISIS weapons depot, killing 13 enemy combatants before they were able to take full control of the building and seizing the large cache of weapons and supplies stored inside.

Fierce clashes broke-out between the National Defense Forces (NDF) and members of ISIS at Cinema Street, where the latter attempted to infiltrate into the Al-Fouad Cinema; however, this militant assault was eventually repelled before nightfall on Tuesday.

Militants from ISIS attacked the 104th Brigade’s fortifications at Al-Jarfa, where they tried to push into the western sector of this village, but were later forced to withdraw their assault due to the significant casualties they sustained during the battle.

Meanwhile, west of Deir Ezzor City, the SAA’s 137th Brigade continued their advance into Al-Shoula, breaking through ISIS’ defenses inside the village and securing the outer perimeter of this imperative area; this village is isolated in the western part of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

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.
