BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has turned the tables on the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, seizing several points after launching a counter-attack near the strategic town of Qomhana.

Led by the Tiger Forces and 11th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army advanced from the Qomhana Cemetery to the small hilltop town of Tal Al-Sammam, where they were confronted by the jihadist forces that retreated from the western flank of Qomhana.

Following a short battle this afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army took full control of Tal Sammam and its three corresponding checkpoints, pushing west of Qomhana in order to expand the buffer-zone around the town.

The Syrian Arab Army now has their sights set on the village of Khattab, which is currently empty but still not safe to enter due to the large presence of jihadist rebels overlooking the area.

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.
