DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:05 P.M.) – Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces division continued its rapid advance against so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS) in eastern Aleppo countryside on Sunday afternoon.

Having secured Al-Samlajiyah village and Al-Khuzaim fuel station liberated earlier today, government forces advanced further southwards, breaking through IS defenses and capturing an important Tal Fiddah hill which overlooks 4 towns located south of it.

The hill itself is situated directly south of Jirrah Airbase.

With these gains, SAA is now in position to enter Maskanah plains, that has been an IS stronghold for nearly two years.

Current Army’s positions are just 10 kilometres to the north of the imperative town of Maskanah which has been a primary target for government troops since liberation of Jirrah Airbase earlier this month.

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.

  • 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.
