On Saturday morning in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Latakia City and Qurdaha; the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP); and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – continued their rapid advance along the Turkish border, capturing several sites from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade”.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies began their assault at the Zahiyah Tower, where they were confronted by a large contingent of Islamists from Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army near the Turkish border-crossing.

Following the violent confrontation with Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies imposed full control of the Zahiyah Tower in Jabal Al-Zahiyah (Zahiyah Mountains), killing several enemy combatants in the process of this advance.

In addition to their advance in Jabal Al-Zahiyah, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over two new sites along the Turkish border; these sites were identified by a military source as Point 812 and Jabal Al-‘Azar (‘Azar Mountains) in Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains).

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.
