Moments ago in the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – imposed full control over the Baradoun Mountains (Jabal Baradoun) after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Following the capture of the Baradoun Mountains, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies captured the Baradoun Dam after the Islamist rebels abandoned their posts in exchange for safe quarters from the swarming Russian fighter jets that were lurking around Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains).

Over the last 48 hours, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies have captured several sites in the Turkmen Mountains; this has tightened the noose around the Islamist rebels that find themselves trapped between these vast mountains and the Turkish border-crossing into the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside.

If the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army do not find a substantial amount of reinforcements soon, they will face a quick exit from both the Turkmen and Kurdish mountains of Latakia.

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.
