BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies from Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary), Liwaa Fatemiyoun, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have begun their counter-offensive against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) along the western bank of the Euphrates River.

Backed by heavy artillery, the Syrian Army and their allies began today’s assault by striking the Islamic State’s positions around the town of Ramadi.

According to a military report, the Syrian Arab Army managed to recapture all of the points they lost at Ramadi after a short battle with the Islamic State.

The Syrian Army and their allies are now working to clear the remaining areas occupied by the Islamic State along the western bank of the Euphrates River.

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.
