BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate, Thursday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last bastion between the strategic cities of Albukamal and Al-Mayadeen.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army attacked a couple of towns controlled by the Islamic State northwest of recently liberated Albukamal.

Not long after launching the attack, the Syrian Arab Army imposed full control over the towns of Wadi Abyad and Subaykhan, forcing the Islamic State to retreat from this area in order to avoid being overrun.

The Syrian Arab Army is now attacking several small towns located along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

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.
