BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – The Lebanese Army resumed their assault on the Syrian border tonight after taking a short break to allow members of the government to inspect the front-lines.

Using heavy artillery and missiles, the Lebanese Army pounded the Ras Ba’albak region of the Beqa’a Governorate, scoring direct hits on the Islamic State’s (ISIL) defenses as their forces prepared for a new ground attack.

The Lebanese Army is now gearing up to storm the Islamic State’s positions in Ras Ba’albak, as they look to expel the terrorists from this mountainous region once and for all.

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.
