The Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division imposed full control over Jabal Thardeh on Thursday after foiling the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) offensive the day prior to this mountaintop’s liberation.

ISIS attempted to seize more points across Jabal Thardeh on Wednesday, but their assault was unable to yield any gains against the Syrian Arab Army units protecting this mountaintop.

Following the Islamic State’s failed offensive, the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Brigade launched their own attack on Thursday to cleanse Jabal Thardeh and expel the remaining terrorist combatants.

This counter-attack ultimately proved successful, as the Islamic State military were forced to retreat towards the Tayyim Valley in southwest Deir Ezzor.

Jabal Thardeh is imperative to the Syrian Armed Forces because if they lose control of it, they will no longer be able to safely use the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

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.
