The Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by Hezbollah, the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), and National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over several farms inside Zibdeen village on Thursday evening after a violent battle with the extremist rebels from Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus.

Following the capture of Zibdeen farms, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah reached the imperative Zibdeen Mosque that has been turned into a military base by the extremist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra and Jaysh Al-Islam.

This major advance on Thursday evening was a result of the Syrian Armed Forces’ relentless push around the strategic village of Deir Al-‘Assafir.

With Deir Al-‘Assafir surrounded from three different flanks, Jaysh Al-Islam and Jabhat Al-Nusra have been forced to abandon several outposts around the Zibdeen area in order to reinforce their front-lines against the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah.

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.
