The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by Hezbollah, Liwaa Imam ‘Ali (Iraqi paramilitary), and the Desert Hawks Brigade – liberated more sites near the strategic city of Palmyra (Tadmur) on Thursday after a violent series of clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

According to the official Tiger Forces media page, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies liberated several ISIL trenches at the village of Wadi Dhakara after steadily advancing in Palmyra’s northern countryside.

In addition to their assault at Wadi Dhakara, the Tiger Forces and their allies are pushing east towards the Qatari Royal Villa after seizing much of Jabal Hayyal and its surrounding hilltops that lead to Palmyra’s western gates.

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.
