BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken the initiative in the eastern countryside of Homs recently, striking the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last positions around the strategic desert-city of Palmyra.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion continued where they left off one week earlier, liberating the long stretch of hilltops at Talat Al-Tafhah.

Video footage of the Syrian Arab Army liberating the Talat Al-Tafhah area was released by the Syrian Ministry of Defense on Thursday:

The Syrian Arab Army is currently in the process of attacking the Islamic State’s last positions at the Al-Sha’er Mountains, which have been under the control of the terrorist group for more than 18 months.

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.
