Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – in coordination with Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and the 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – imposed full control over the Jazal Gas Fields after a series of intense firefights with the militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.

According to a military source in the Homs Governorate, the Tiger Forces and their allies now control both the Jazal Gas Fields and the town of Jazal, leaving only the main road to the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) under the possession of ISIS; if the Syrian Armed Forces can capture this road, they will have a clear path to the city of Palmyra from the northern flank at Al-‘Amariyah.

In a surprise transfer, the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command has redeployed the leader of the Tiger Forces – Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan – to the eastern Homs front, where his soldiers – under the command of Captain Lu’ayy Al-Sleitan – have remained since many of the Tiger Forces’ soldiers were sent to the Idlib Governorate in April of this year.

Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan has a lot of experience in the desert area of Syria, as he originally led the counter-offensive against ISIS at the Al-Sha’ar Mountains (Jabal Al-Sha’ar) in September 2014.

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.
