The Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Armored and 11th Tank Divisions – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – have intensified their assault on the Al-Rastan and Al-Houla Plains of the Homs Governorate’s northern countryside this morning, striking the Islamist rebels of the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham at cities of Talbiseh, Dar Al-Kabeera, Maskar Al-Hasaan, Sinaysil, Jawalek, and Al-Ghantu.

The Syrian Armed Forces began their assault at the city of Sinaysil located inside the Al-Houla Plains, where they attacked the frontline positions of Jabhat Al-Nusra and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham; this assault was intensified by the Russian Air Force’s MI-24 Hind Helicopter Gunships that rained hell over the Islamist rebels.

While the Russian choppers were bombarding the Islamist rebels in Sinaysil, their Air Force’s SU-25 fighter jets helped fracture Jabhat Al-Nusra’s defenses at Jawalek, propelling the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Armored Division and the National Defense Forces to advance inside this town neighboring Sinaysil to the west and Hashemeh to the east.

With the Syrian Armed Forces intensifying their ground assault to reopen the strategic Homs-Hama Highway inside the rebel strongholds of Talbiseh and Al-Rastan, the Russian Air Force seeks to eliminate the Al-Qaeda linked factions operating along this rugged area.

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.
