The Syrian Arab Army’s 1st Armored Division and Hezbollah have expanded their control over a number of points along the Qalamoun Mountains on the border of Lebanon, killing over 40 enemy combatants from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and destroying six of their armed vehicles that were mounted with a variety of anti-aircraft machine guns.

According to a variety of military sources in Damascus, the SAA’s 1st Armored Division and Hezbollah captured Sayr Ezz Al-Deen, Wadi Al-Deeb, and Shamees ‘Ayn Al-Ward inside the Jour Al-‘Anib area of the Qalamoun Mountains; this resulted in the death over 23 confirmed militants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and four armored vehicles mounted with both 14.5mm and 23mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

Directly following the capture of the Jour Al-‘Anib area, a contingent from Hezbollah stormed Wadi Al-Daar, Harif Al-Mohammadat, and Harif Al-Kharif on the border of Lebanon, where they were able to establish full control over this collection of rugged hills in the Qalamoun Mountains of Syria.

Syrian Opposition activists have attempted to counter these claims; however, footage from ‘Assal Al-Ward depicts Hezbollah and the Syrian Armed Forces in full control of this strategic border town.

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.
