On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Al-Ba’ath Battalions – attacked the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at a number of sites in northern Aleppo, targeting the territory located directly west of the recently captured Aleppo Infantry Academy.

The Syrian Armed Forces attacked ISIS at Jabal ‘Antar and Kafr Tunah from their positions at the village of Duwayr Al-Zeitoun on Sunday evening and resumed their assault the following morning; this resulted in the capture of the town and the small mountaintop from the terrorist group in northern Aleppo.

Following their success at Kafr Tunah and Jabal ‘Antar, the Syrian Armed Forces launched an assault on the Aleppo Free Trade Zone and the Aleppo Juvenile Detention Center from their positions at the village of Al-Muslimiyah, killing over 15 enemy combatants from the terrorist group, while also destroying two of their armored vehicles that were mounted with a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun.

The capture of the aforementioned sites in northern Aleppo marks the first time since January of this year that the Syrian Armed Forces have made any gains in northern Aleppo; this is also the first time that the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS have encountered one another since the Islamist rebels withdrew from the Aleppo Infantry Academy.

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.
