On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Cheetah Forces” (Tiger Forces branch) – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Ba’ath Battalions), and Iraqi Militiamen – launched an assault on the town of Al-Nasiriyah from their positions at Tal Na’am in east Aleppo, where they were confronted by a large contingent from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the southern axis.

Following a violent exchange of hostilities, the SAA’s Cheetah Forces and their allies imposed full control over Al-Nasiriyah, killing over 25 enemy combatants from ISIS, while destroying 4 of their armored vehicles that were mounted with 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns and the terrorist group’s main weapons depot.

With the success at Al-Nasiriyah, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies have now advanced to the town of Barayjeh, which is approximately 7km away from the Kuweires Military Airport’s southwestern perimeter; if captured, the pro-government forces will two villages away from the airbase and the imperative Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

Last night, the Syrian Arab Army soldiers at the Kuweires Military Airport carried out a special ops mission to cutoff the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway in order to obstruct the terrorist group’s main supply route to the strategic Thermal Plant.

The Thermal Plant’s centralized location makes it an integral site for the terrorist group because it is located along the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway that feeds to a number of small roads towards the Jabboul Lake region of the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside.

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.
