On Friday morning in the Aleppo Governorate’s southeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the Cheetah Forces “Team 3” and “Team 6”; the National Defense Forces (NDF); the Republican Guard; and Hezbollah – liberated 5 villages along the strategic Khanasser-Aleppo Road after a short battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) inside the Khanasser Plains.

According to a military source from the Tiger Forces in southeast Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over Shilallah Al-Saghira, Mina’ya, and Jokhah after launching a powerful assault this morning from their positions at the nearby villages of Shilallah Al-Kabeera and Rasm Al-Nafal.

Only a small parcel of territory remains under ISIS’ control in the Khanasser Plains; however, these villages are likely to be captured by the Syrian Armed Forces in the coming hours as they continue to encircle the terrorist group’s final positions in southeastern Aleppo.

Currently, the Tiger Forces and their allies are storming the imperative village of Hawaz, which is located northeast of Khanasser; its capture would allow the Syrian Armed Forces to seize the last hilltops near the town of Raheeb.

In an attempt to deter the Syrian Armed Forces from the Khanasser Plains, ISIS launched another assault on the town of Hamman at the Hama-Aleppo axis; however, preliminary reports indicate that the attack has been repelled.

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.
