On Wednesday afternoon in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Latakia City, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and the Syrian Resistance – imposed full control over Point 485.5 in the Black Mountains (Jabal Al-Aswad) after a series of intense firefights with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade”.

According to a battlefield journalist that is embedded with the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies advanced from the Al-Zahiyah Mountains to the Black Mountains on the border of Turkey; this allowed for them to expand their territorial gains while also closing the gap on this vast border-crossing.

Earlier this morning in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies launched another assault on Jabal Al-Sayyid (Al-Sayyid Mountains) in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad) in order to officially seal the recently captured Al-Nuba Mountains from the Islamist rebel forces that conceded this area last weekend.

Clashes are currently ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels at Jabal Al-Sayyid; however, the latter is currently withdrawing their fighters after Russian fighter jets pounded their positions.

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.

There will not be peace in Syrian until every point on the Turkish border, the source of supplies for the criminals who infest northern Syria, is closed.
