The extremist rebels in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus are having a rough start to the day; especially, after losing the strategic town of Deir Al-‘Assafir to the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard and Hezbollah.

Further adding to the rebel plight in the East Ghouta, the Syrian Republican Guard and Hezbollah imposed full control over the important town of Zibdeen after overrunning Faylaq Al-Rahman’s defenses on Thursday.

With the capture of Zibdeen and Deir Al-‘Assafir, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have secured the Damascus International Airport and the nearby Sayyida Zaynab Shrine in southern Damascus.

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.
