The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Ba’ath Battalion (Kata’ebat Al-Ba’ath) – has asserted full-control over the Oil Depot (Mafraq Al-Betroul) near the recently captured village of Badran in southern Al-Hasakah.

According to a military source, the SAA and their allies killed 14 militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) during this operation, including Bassam ‘Umar Al-Tamer, Rabiyya ‘Ahmad Marzouq, and Ziad ‘Abdel-Rahman Al-Hourani.

The SAA was able to repel a number of ISIS contingents attempting to infiltrate into the recently liberated villages of Jamou, Badran, and Al-Dahwaniyyeh in the southern Al-Hasakah countryside; this assault was repelled before the militants were able to regain control over their lost territory.

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.
