After barraging Jaish Al Islam militants with artillery fire and airstrikes for a few hours, the Syrian Army launched a military operation to capture the strategically imperative town of Mayda’a.

The Syrian Army was able to enter the town after softening the Islamists’ position in the town with fire power, killing at least 9 militants in the process of capturing the eastern neighborhood of the town.

Clashes are expected to intensify in the coming hours. If the Syrian Army establishes control over this town, they would have effectively positioned themselves to strike Hawsh al-Farah from three separate flanks.

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.

Can’t wait to see Ghouta liberated! Soon Damascus will be completely cleansed of jihadists and then thousands of the Syrian army’s best troops can move from Damascus to other fronts. The takfiris will be doomed.
