HAMA, SYRIA (6:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been rolling in the northern Hama countryside lately, capturing several points from the exhausted jihadist rebels of Jund Al-Sham (mostly Chechen fighters) and Jaysh Al-Izza.

On Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces,” backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and 87th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division, seized two more points from Jaysh Al-Izza, building a larger buffer-zone at the northern perimeter of Souran.

In addition to their advance at Souran, the Syrian Armed Forces also pushed north of Ma’an village after capturing more hilltops along the M-5 Highway (Aleppo-Damascus HIghway).

As a result of their advance on Thursday, the Syrian Armed Forces reached the outskirts of both Morek and Lahaya, which are located just south of the Idlib Governorate border.

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.
