Two days after capturing the Al-Ahdath Juvenile Detention Center and the Al-Hasakah Power Plant, the Syrian Arab Army’s 123rd Tank Brigade of the 3rd Armored Division – in coordination with the 154th Artillery Brigade of 4th Mechanized Division, and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – expanded their buffer-zone outside of the provincial capital to 12km from the city’s gates after another day of fierce clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The clashes outside of the provincial capital began at 6:45 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Monday morning, when the SAA’s 123rd and 154th Brigads attacked the militants from ISIS at Aliyah, killing 11 of the enemy combatants, while confiscating a large cache of their heavy weaponry that was abandoned inside a warehouse at this village on the outskirts of Al-Hasakah City.

Following their initial assault on the village of Aliyah, the Syrian Armed Forces regrouped to launch another powerful attack on the militants of ISIS; this time, the Syrian Army’s joint forces were able to overpower the terrorist organization at this village and impose full control over all points in this area, leaving many enemy combatants dead or wounded before the latter withdrew completely.

In addition to their capture of Aliyah, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their counter-assault at the villages of Rad Shaqra, Al-Dawoudiyah, Salihiyah, and Al-Abyad, where they seek to expel the militants of ISIS after almost two weeks of continued violence in the southern part of the provincial capital’s defensive barriers.

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.
