BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a big advance in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, Monday, liberating several towns just south of Al-Mayadeen.

Backed by the IRGC and Hezbollah, the Syrian Arab Army liberated a half dozen towns that were under the control of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).

Among the areas that were liberated on Monday was the strategic town of Al-Asharah, which was one of the last sites under the Islamic State’s control in this pocket on the western bank of the Euphrates River.

The Syrian Army and their allies now working to clear the towns located directly south of this liberated pocket.

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
