The Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division and their allies are steadily advancing along the southeastern Homs front, seizing several points and hilltops near the strategic city of Quraytayn that has been under the control of the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) since August of 2015.

On Monday evening, the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade – alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – imposed full control over Points 901, 903, 912 near the small hilltop village of Tar Al-Kharoubah in the Quraytayn countryside.

As a result of these gains made on Monday evening, the Syrian Armed Forces have successfully tightened the noose around the remaining ISIS terrorists that are encamped in the mountains overlooking the ancient Assyrian city of Quraytayn in the Homs Governorate’s southeastern countryside.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are actively working to clear the Maheen-Quraytayn Road that was infiltrated by several ISIS fighters during  the terrorist group’s small-scale counter-offensive a few weeks back.

The city of Quraytayn is strategically located in the vast desert landscape of southeastern Homs; if captured, the Syrian Armed Forces would have a clear path to the Tanf border-crossing into the Al-‘Anbar Governorate of western Iraq.

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

  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
