BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF), resumed their important offensive in the northeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, liberating new territory from the Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists near the Al-Sha’er Mountains.

Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army managed to break-through the Islamic State’s defenses east of Al-Shumriyah Mountains today, liberating two hilltops after a fierce battle with the terrorist group.

According to the National Defense Forces’ official media wing, the Syrian Army liberated the ISIL-held hilltops of Talat Al-Rajam and Talat Al-Sheihat, forcing the terrorist group to retreat east in order to avoid being overrun.

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.
