In a matter of four hours, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Aleppo City, Al-Ba’ath Battalions, Harakat Al-Nujaba (Iraqi Paramilitary), Kataeb Hezbollah (Iraqi Paramilitary), and Firqa Fatimeyyoun (Iranian-Afghani Paramilitary) – have advanced several kilometers south of Aleppo City, capturing a total of six villages from the Islamist rebel forces this morning.

At noon (Damascus Time), the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies stormed the village of Hadidah after taking control of the nearby villages of Jamaymah and Maryameen near the strategic town of Al-Hadher; this resulted in the swift capture of the village and the immediate withdrawal of the Islamist rebel forces from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki, Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Following the capture of Hadidah, Jamaymah, and Maryameen, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies targeted three more villages in southern Aleppo.

Instead, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies targeted the large village of Musharafah, killing 9 enemy combatants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sham before imposing full control over the area.

According to field reports from the journalists – Kinana Alloush and Hussein Murtada – the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies also captured the villages of Hadadi and Zahra’a (not to be confused with the town in northern Aleppo) – their locations in southern Aleppo were not provided.

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.
