BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army resumed their large-scale offensive in northwestern Deir Ezzor, Sunday, liberating a large portion of the territory occupied by the so-called Islamic State (ISIL).

Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army launched a big attack on the towns of ‘Ayn Abu Jama’a, Hawayj Abu Masaa, Al-Kharetah, Hawysh Al-Shamiya, Mazra’a Hajj Hammoud, and Saleh Al-Hamad.

Within hours of launching this attack, the Syrian Arab Army was able to take full control of these towns, along with the oil fields surrounding them in the northwestern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

With this latest advance, the Syrian Arab Army is now on the verge of completely sealing off the Islamic State’s northwestern pocket in Deir Ezzor.

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.
