BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah liberated more areas from the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) this week in the Badiya Al-Sham region.

Backed by heavy airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army and Hezbollah were able to advance at the Qasra Al-Saqiyah area after a short battle with the Islamic State terrorists.

The Syrian Army and Hezbollah liberated Qasra Al-Saqiyah and advanced another 7km west towards the Khirbat Al-Ambashi region.

Furthermore, the Syrian Army and Hezbollah reportedly also advanced another 10km from the Al-Zalaf area to the large hills of Taloul Al-Safa

The Syrian Army’s offensive in the Badiya Al-Sham region was briefly halted on Friday after the Islamic State launched a powerful attack on the strategic border-city of Albukamal; it would ultimately fail after several hours.

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.
