The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard is steamrolling through the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside, seizing village after village from the Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), who cannot seemingly find a way to halt the pro-government forces from advancing towards the Turkish border.

Moments ago in Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains), the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and Muqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) – imposed full control over the village of Al-Tafahiyah after a violent battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army this morning.

As a result of these gains, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade and their allies are inching closer to the rebel stronghold of Al-Rabi’yah, leaving the Jabhat Al-Nusra and Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade” in a dire situation in Latakia’s northern countryside.

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.
