BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:35 P.M.) – It took nearly one to do it, but the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) finally liberated the strategic Hayyan Gas Fields after a swift advance in western Palmyra (Tadmur) today.

Led by the 5th Legion and Shaheen Group, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate the Hayyan Gas Fields today after advancing west from the recently captured Jihar Crossroad.

The Jihar Crossroad, which is 40km west of Palmyra, was considered the last important point before the Hayyan Gas Fields; once it was liberated this week, it was just a matter of time before the Syrian Arab Army was going to seize gas fields.

Prior to retreating from the Hayyan Gas Fields, the Islamic State terrorists completely destroyed the gas company site, leaving millions in government-held Syria without gas during these frigid months.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

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.
