ALEPPO, SYRIA (11:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah made their first major push at the southern outskirts of Aleppo in several weeks, capturing a number of sites from the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest).

The assault began with the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah surprising the jihadist rebels along the Khan Touman Road, killing a number of militants in the process.

As a result of this surprise attack, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah managed to impose full control over the Air Defense Base and small hilltop of Tal SyriaTel along the main road to the jihadist-stronghold of Khan Touman.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are pushing south towards the Aleppo-Damascus Highway (M-5 Highway), which is also the location of Khan Touman and the ICARDA Farms.

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.
