The Iraqi Army – backed by the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and local tribesmen – imposed full control over several sites near the recently liberated town of Al-Hit in the Al-‘Anbar Governorate on Saturday.

According to the Iraqi Defense Ministry, the Iraqi Army and popular committees liberated the villages of Al-Khawdah and Al-Meshtal in southern Al-Hit after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Following the capture of Al-Hit earlier this month, the Iraqi Armed Forces have been steadily pushing west towards the Syrian border-city of Abukamaal in order to end ISIS’ monopolization of the Syria-Iraq border.

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.

I wish they’d describe the tactical advantages of wearing black in a 110-degree desert…

Maybe these one are more used to night ops… You’re wrong : they go up to 32°C in summer, but around 10°C in winter, it’s around 20/22° in spring/fall and, in heights, you can have snow in winter! This is not Saudi-Arabia : this is far to be a big desert!
