Two days after cutting off the last road linking the Islamist rebels inside two important cities in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces – alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Republican Guard – has begun the imperative siege of Darayya, striking several neighborhoods under the control of Ajnad Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).

According to a military source in the Syrian capital of Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces have already seized a number of building blocks near the 4 Seasons Hotel, while also advancing 200 meters west of the Masjid Bilal Al-Habshi in the Darayya Association District.

The Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra are currently surrounded by the Syrian Armed Forces at both Darayya and Mo’adhimiyah, with no roads linking these two imperative cities together in order for the militants to exchange supplies and send reinforcements.

While the siege of Darayya begins, the Syrian Armed Forces have not committed to besieging the strategic city of Mo’adhimiyah just yet; this is due to the recent offer of a peaceful surrender from the Syrian Arab Army to the Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army – they have 4 days left to accept the terms.

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.
