The Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – backed by the 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – imposed full control over the large hilltop of Tal SyriaTel in southeast Homs after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) on Tuesday morning.

According to a military source in Damascus City, Tal SyriaTel is situated approximately 20 km east of the recently liberated city of Quraytayn, which is located in the vast Syrian Desert of southeastern Homs.

Since liberating both Palmyra (Tadmur) and Quraytayn, the Syrian Armed Forces have found themselves under assault by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham at this desert front; however, they have been able to beat back all of the terrorist group’s attacks.

If the Syrian Armed Forces want to keep control of Palmyra and Quraytayn, they will need to strengthen their supply lines and clear the mountains of northeast Homs.

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.
