One day after repelling the massive counter-offensive launched by the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social National Party (SSNP), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian resistance) – cleared the village of ‘Ateiri in the Turkmen Mountains of northern Latakia after a violent battle on Tuesday morning.

According to the battlefield correspondent Iyad Al-Hussein, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies control all of ‘Ateiri and its surrounding hills, despite claims made by social media activists from the Syrian Opposition about the capture of this strategic village by the Islamist rebels near the Turkish border.

In addition to clearing ‘Ateiri in the Turkmen Mountains, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – alongside Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra and the National Defense Forces – imposed full control over the village of Murayj on Monday night, resulting in the death of a number of members from Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army.

Currently, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies are advancing along two different axes in northern Latakia, as they look to seal off the Idlib border.

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.
