On Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 154th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Gozarto Protection Forces (Assyrian militia) and the Al-Ba’ath Battalion (Kata’eb Al-Ba’ath) – have advanced to the Youth Housing building in Al-Hasakah City after fierce clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Following their capture of the Faculty of Economics building and the Industrial Institute in the Al-Zuhour Quarter, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to press further south towards the Youth Housing building, forcing the terrorist group to have to reinforce their defensive positions around the building’s northern perimeter.

The Youth Housing building is located in the southern district of the Al-Zuhour Quarter; it is located directly north of the Panorama Roundabout that leads into the provincial capital of Al-Hasakah.

To further the plight of the ISIS militants inside the provincial capital, the Syrian Armed Forces advanced into the Al-Shari’ah District of the Al-Nishwa Quarter after securing the Al-Hasakah Villas and the remaining contested neighborhoods in the east district.

As of Saturday, the Syrian Armed Forces are now in control of 30 percent of the west district inside the Al-Nishwa Quarter; this has forced ISIS to retreat towards the Al-Hasakah Mail Depot, despite once controlling the eastern axis of the west district.

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.
