On Tuesday afternoon in the Homs Governorate’s southeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division and their allies imposed full control over Tal Al-Turakis near the strategic city of Quraytayn after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

At Tal Turakis, the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade was backed by several pro-government paramilitary units, including Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Dara’ Qalamoun (Qalamoun Shield), the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalion), and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP).

Tal Turakis is located in Quraytayn’s western countryside; this flank is the primary target for the Syrian Armed Forces because of its terrain and proximity to their supply routes to this city.

The Russian Air Force is currently combing through this area in the vast desert of Homs, striking several sites that are under the control of ISIS along the Quraytayn-Palmyra Road and the Sukhenah-Palmyra Road.

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.
