Clashes renewed between the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces and the Islamic State as the former attempt to advance toward the city of Tabqa (al-Thawra) in northern Syria.

The predominately-Kurdish forces – which control the Tabqa-Raqqa highway –  try to encircle Tabqa, therefore marching on from two axes; the southern entrance of the city and the eastern outskirts.

To the east, battles are still ongoing to seize the strategic Abbad and Safsafeh villages. If lost to SDF, ISIS militants will be trapped in their bastion as the two villages are located on the area separating Tabqa from the group’s de-facto capital.

In the same context, Kurdish militants shot down an ISIS drone near the Tabqa airbase.

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.
