On Saturday afternoon in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Qurdaha, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), and the Syrian Resistance – imposed full control over 3 villages in the Kurdish Mountains (Jabal Al-Akrad) after a violent battle with the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies seized the villages of Kadeen, Mughayriyah, and Binjazi this morning after taking a three week long hiatus from the Jabal Al-Akrad front to focus on Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains).

The aforementioned villages are situated to the northeast of the strategic town of Salma in Jabal Al-Akrad, which is considered to be one of the most important sites in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside that is under the control of the Islamist rebels from Jabhat Al-Nusra.

With the capture of these three villages this morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies (primarily the Syrian Social Nationalist Party) are steadily working to encirce the imperative town of Salma, as they push from two different axes along the Jabal Al-Akrad front.

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.
