On Friday night, the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – alongside Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – advanced to the strategic town of Deir Al-‘Assafir after a violent 3 day long battle with the extremist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).

This latest government advance in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus was a result of the Syrian Arab Army’s relentless push across the Bala Farms near the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airport.

Assisting the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah from above, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) carried out several airstrikes over the town of Deir Al-‘Assafir on Friday, killing a large number of enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Faylaq Al-Rahman.

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.
