The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” and their allies from Hezbollah and the National Defense Forces (NDF) are rolling in the Aleppo Governorate’s eastern countryside after capturing the village of ‘Aqulah over the weekend.

Earlier today, the Tiger Forces and their allies launched a powerful assault on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions at the Rasm Al-‘Abid Grain Silos, killing over 15 enemy combatants and destroying 3 armored vehicles that were mounted with 14.5mm anti-aircraft machine guns.

Following a violent confrontation with the ISIS combatants, the Tiger Forces and their allies imposed full control over the Rasm Al-‘Abid Grain Silos, further expanding their buffer zone around the southern perimeter of the Kuweires Military Airport and the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa Highway.

As a result of their success at the Rasm Al-‘Abid Grain Silos, the Tiger Forces and their allies are now within striking distance of the strategic hilltop village of Tal Al-Ahmar; this aforementioned village is used by ISIS to launch mortar shells and rockets into the Kuweires Military Airport’s southern sector.

In a matter of 24 hours, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have captured almost 10 square kilometers of territory to the south of the Kuweires Military Airport, as the ISIS terrorists continue their wide-scale retreat across the Deir Hafer Plains of east Aleppo.

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.
