Last week, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Liwaa Al-Quds (Jerusalem Brigade) – liberated a total of 13 villages in the Khanasser Plains of southeast Aleppo after a successful military campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Thanks to the efforts by the Syrian Armed Forces, civilians were able to return to their homes in the villages of Jubb Al-‘Ali, Khanaysir, Khirbat Al-Qalay’at, Furdaah, Al-Toubah, Hayak Al-Saghirah, Hayak Al-Kabeerah, and Zebed in the Khanasser Plains after leaving this region in late 2012.

As a result of this successful military campaign, the Syrian Armed Forces have now advanced to the border of the Maskanah Plains, where ISIS is deeply entrenched around several villages near the Euphrates River.

The battle for the Al-Maskanah Plains has not begun just yet and will not likely begin for a few weeks as the Syrian Armed Forces continue to mobilize more soldiers to combat ISIS’ large military presence in this region of the Aleppo Governorate.

However, should the Syrian Armed Forces capture the Al-Maskanah Plains, they will be in great position to attack the Tabaqa Military Airport and the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

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.
