HAMA, SYRIA (5:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale counter-offensive in the northern Hama countryside on Saturday night, targeting the villages under the control of Jund Al-Aqsa (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) that are located to the north of Taybat Al-Ism.

Following a successful day that included the seizure of 10villages and several hilltops, the Syrian Armed Forces turned their attention to the strategic town of Ma’an, which is situated directly northwest of Karah.

Led by the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and 555th Regiment of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Armed Forces stormed the southwestern perimeter of Ma’an, resulting in a fierce battle with Jund Al-Aqsa militants that is still ongoing at the moment.

If their assault at Ma’an is successful, then the Syrian Armed Forces can turn their attention to the villages of Kabariyah and Kawkab.

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.
