It has been a rough morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s southern countryside for the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, as the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have seized three villages in a matter of two hours near the strategic town of Tal Al-‘Eiss.

According to a battlefield journalist entrenched with the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division in Tal Al-‘Eiss, the Syrian Armed Forces, Hezbollah, and the Iraqi paramilitaries imposed full control over the village of Khalsah after a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jabhat Al-Nusra, and Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki this morning.

With Khalsah officially under the Syrian Armed Forces control, the Islamist rebels are now one village away from having all of their recent gains in southern Aleppo reversed by the pro-government forces; this means that if Burnah is captured, the Islamist rebels will have lost every village they seized two weeks ago.

Currently, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division and Hezbollah have seized 70 percent of Burnah from the Islamist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, leaving only the western sector of the village left under the latter’s control.

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.
