BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive at Hawijat Qati in Deir Ezzor, Thursday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last positions at the northeastern part of this island.

Led by the Tiger Forces and 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Army liberated several parts of the island, forcing the remaining Islamic State terrorists to retreat to the northeastern shore of Hawijat Qati.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army now controls more than 80 percent of Hawijat Qati after Thursday’s advance.

However, the Syrian Army’s advance will stall in the coming days as the large presence of civilians trapped by the Islamic State will force them to negotiate with the terrorist group in order to get them to surrender Hawijat Qati.

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.
