Minutes ago in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by Hezbollah and 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – launched a new assault at the imperative village of Harasta Al-Quntara.

The military operation by the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah is being conducted from two different axes (south and west), as they look to eliminate the extremist salient near the strategic village of Zibdeen.

No gains have been reported from the East Ghouta yet; however, this assault is expected to intensify in the coming hours, as the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah look to enter the village.

Should Harasta Al-Quntara fall to the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah, then the extremist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jaysh Al-Fustat will be in serious trouble at the nearby villages of Hawsh Al-Jarbo and Al-Mohammadiyah.

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.
