The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade (commandos) of the Republican Guard and their allies are cruising through the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside, capturing the remaining villages and hilltops that are under the control of the Islamist rebels in Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains).

On Sunday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade – backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), Fouj Al-Mughawayr Al-Bahir (Syrian Marines) – imposed full control over the villages of Beit Al-Awis, Hakoura Tahtani, and ‘Ard Al-Wata after a violent battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), the Free Syrian Army’s “1st Coastal Brigade), and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

With the capture of the aforementioned villages in northeastern Latakia today, the Syrian Armed Forces are steadily improving their positions along the Aleppo-Latakia Highway (M-4) in order to eventually launch their large-scale offensive at the strategic city of Jisr Al-Shughour in the Idlib Governorate’s northwestern countryside.

However, before they can attack Jisr Al-Shughour, the Syrian Armed Forces will have to capture the imperative villages of Kabani and nearby Al-Sirmaniyah; these aforementioned sites have been under the control of the Islamist rebels since they captured the city of Jisr Al-Shughour in May 2015.

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.
