On Friday night inside the Dara’a Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 38th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – imposed full control over the village of Al-Naymah after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The Syrian Armed Forces launched their powerful assault on Al-Naymah this evening, when they launched a barrage of mortar shells into this village located at the eastern flank of Dara’a City.

The capture of Al-Naymah comes just 18 hours after the Syrian Armed Forces seized the imperative town of ‘Itman near the provincial capital of the Dara’a Governorate.

With Al-Naymah and ‘Itman under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces have secured the northern and eastern flanks of Dara’a City, leaving the Islamist rebels with only two flanks to attack the provincial capital from.

As a result of their military operations near the provincial capital today, the Syrian Armed Forces are inching closer to securing the vast Jordanian border with the Dara’a Governorate; this is something that they have been unable to do since they lost their last border-crossing at Nassib.

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.
