The Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” – backed by Jaysh Al-Turkmen and the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade” – attempted to bypass the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the strategic mountaintop of Jabal Qal’at, resulting in a violent battle that only lasted for 3 hours on Wednesday afternoon.

According to a field report from the northern Latakia front, the Syrian Arab Army’s 48th Special Forces Regiment was able to spot the extremist rebels trying to infiltrate Jabal Qal’at’s northwestern perimeter, prompting them to attack the opposition forces before they could make any headway in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad).

The source added that 7 members of Jabhat Al-Nusra were picked-off by the Syrian Arab Army’s 48th Regiment before they frantically retreated towards the Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4 Highway).

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.
