The Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division is rolling through the Hama-Raqqa countryside, capturing several sites each day as the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists continue their massive retreat towards the Tabaqa Military Airport.

On Saturday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade – backed by the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment) – imposed full control over the village of Al-Massabah after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham near the strategic town of Zakiyah.

In addition to capturing Al-Massabah, the Syrian Armed Forces also established full control over Point 4 (hilltop) after capturing nearby Point 5 from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham terrorists last night.

According to a military source from the 555th Brigade, the Syrian Armed Forces are still positioned outside of Zakiyah; however, they are inching closer to this town each day and should be within striking distance by next week.

  • 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.

Özgür Süriye Ordusu wasn’t exactly much help here…or are you implying that they fear for their brothers from Islamic State?

Can’t find Zakiya and Al-Massabah on any map, are they real?

These articles are rather meaningless without a map to show where the village is located.
