DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:45 A.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) launched another wide-scale offensive in the eastern Homs countryside on Monday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) controlled village of Jubb Al-Jarrah.

ISIS began the offensive by storming the eastern outskirts of Jubb Al-Jarrah, resulting in a fierce battle with the Syrian Arab Army that lasted for nearly 6 hours on Monday.

Despite their best attempts to breach the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at Jubb Al-Jarrah, the Islamic State terrorists were routed after suffering heavy casualties at the eastern outskirts of this village.

Following the Islamic State’s failed offensive, the Syrian Arab Army took the opportunity to strike the terrorist group’s defenes at Rahoum, Rasm Al-Sab’ah, Ank Al-Hawah, and Al-Mushairfah in the Syrian Desert.

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.
