The Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard and Hezbollah are rolling through the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus, capturing several sites from the extremist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jaysh Al-Fustat on Tuesday.

Earlier today, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah captured the strategic Military Construction Base at the southern outskirts of Beit Na’am; this paved the way for the government forces to enter the aforementioned village this evening.

Following their entry into the village of Beit Na’am, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah reportedly broke through Faylaq Al-Rahman’s first line of defense at Al-Muhammadiyah, seizing the southern flank of this small East Ghouta town after a violent battle.

As a result of this major advance on Tuesday, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have finally entered the central region of the East Ghouta, marking the first time in four years that the Syrian government has had any presence in this area.

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.
