The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah (Party of God) – is on the move near the vital city of Al-Lajaat in northeast Dara’a, as they conduct numerous clean-up operations on the border of the As-Sweida Governorate in order to clear a path to this rebel-held area.

On early Saturday morning, the loyalist forces surprised the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra) and contingents loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) with a ferocious assault that netted over 30 confirmed militants in the matter of 45 minutes. This attack forced the Al-Nusra Front and ISIS loyalists to retreat west and regroup before they could break the brief siege of Al-Lajaat.

In the vicinity of Al-Lajaat, contingents from the NDF and SAA carried out an attack on Al-Nusra Front militants at the village of Tal Shaheeb, resulting in the death of 9 enemy combatants, including their leader “Abu Moussa Al-Masri” (Egyptian). Fierce clashes are still ongoing at this area located east of the Khalkhalat Airport in the As-Sweida Governorate.

Ongoing clashes were reported between the SAA and Al-Nusra Front on the road leading to the Dara’a Governorate village of Jimreen from the province of As-Sweida. No further details were given.

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.
