Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

      Seems waiste of meens, but since having a lot of them, and not considering costs, they are repeating it with some success.

      VIDEO: Rebel TOW missile takes out 24 government soldiers in Latakia
      By Chris Tomson -
      18/05/2016

      During the evening, a pinpoint TOW missile attack by the Free Syrian Army’s 1st Coastal Division killed 13 and injured 11 of the pro-government National Defence Forces (NDF). The NDF soldiers became sitting ducks when their commander ordered the unit to regroup after government forces lost control of Tall Haddadeh earlier today.

        Syrian Forces Win Back 2 Strategic Towns Near Marj al-Sultan Airbase

        Thu May 19, 2016 4:50

        TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army backed by Hezbollah and National Defense
        Forces (NDF) seized back control of two strategic towns of al-Zina and
        Hauz al-Homsi near the recently-captured military airport of Marj
        al-Sultan in Eastern Ghouta.

        Different heavy and light weapons were used by the Syrian forces and
        their allies during clashes with the terrorists which killed and
        injured tens of militants.

        The Syrian army also took control of Qanveh building in Bayaz village
        in Sha'ba region and a number of other blocks in front of the
        agricultural ministry's office in the region.

        Military sources announced on Tuesday that the Syrian army troops and
        popular forces, in a fresh round of joint offensives, hit the
        terrorist groups' positions hard in Eastern Ghouta and forced the
        militants to retreat from a strategic town in the region.

        "The terrorist groups left behind scores of the dead and injured
        member and pulled the remaining pockets of their forced from Hosh
        al-Khatib," the sources said, adding, "Recapture of Hosh al-Khatib
        will put terrorist groups in Deir al-Assafir under more pressure."

        Marj al-Sultan region is home to one of the most important airbases in
        Central Syria with the same name, therefore, the government forces
        have done their best in the recent weeks to restore full security to
        the region which can be considered as a Central command in
        anti-terrorism campaign.

        On November 12, the Syrian army and popular forces completely pushed
        back the militant groups from Marj al-Sultan Airbase and its
        surroundings, scoring their second groundbreaking victory after
        lifting the ISIL siege of Kuweires airbase in Aleppo province a few
        days earlier.

        Syrian army forces entered Marj al-Sultan military airbase in Eastern
        Ghouta on November 10, and brought the base under full control two
        days later.

              Damascus Countryside: Syrian Army Wins Back 13 Villages in Eastern Ghouta

              Fri May 20, 2016 5:33

              TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army managed to seize back over a dozen
              villages in heavy clashes with the Takfiri terrorists in Eastern
              Ghouta in Damascus countryside.

              A sum of 13 villages covering an area of 40 square kilometers is now
              under the Syrian army's control, battlefield sources announced on
              Friday.

              The Takfiri terrorists of Ahrar al-Sham, Faylaq al-Rahman and Jeish
              al-Islam were driven by the Syrian army from Bayadh Shaba'a, Zobdeen,
              Harasta al-Quntara, Bazina, Deir al-Assafir, Arz al-Nahasiya, Housh
              al-Homsi, al-Rakabiya, Arz al-Shartout, Arz al-Kasar, al-Azodiya,
              Nouleh and Bala al-Qadima.

              The Syrian army has managed to maintain the security of Damascus
              Airport and the road leading to Zaynabiya region.

              Earlier on Friday, the Syrian government forces detected and destroyed
              several tunnels used by the militants to move across Eastern Ghouta.

              "The Syrian Army seized a net of tunnels used by Takfiri terrorists in
              the battlefields of Eastern part of Damascus," the sources said,
              adding, "The Syrian soldiers and Hezbollah fighter, who captured
              several villages from the extremist of Faylaq al-Rahman and Jeish
              al-Fustat on Thursday, unearthed a large network of tunnels that
              stretched from the villages of Sheba’a to Deir al-Assafir."

              "These tunnels were heavily stocked with assault rifles, ammunition,
              mortar shells, missiles, maps, Saudi produced food, first aid kits,
              telecommunication devices, entertainment equipment, and educational
              pamphlets," they added.

              Also on Wednesday, the Syrian army units blew up a tunnel dug by the
              al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front in the suburb of the capital
              Damascus, killing the entire militants inside.

              The 400-meter-long tunnel, dug in Qudsiyeh Damascus' suburb by
              al-Nusra terrorists, was detonated by the Syrian army.

              Detonation of the tunnel inflicted major losses on the terrorists.

              The tunnel enjoyed a storage room, ventilation pipes and other
              necessary equipment.

                US Air Force drops “leave now” leaflets over Raqqa as Kurdish forces prepare to attack
                By Leith Fadel -
                21/05/2016

                The U.S. Air Force dropped thousands of leaflets over the provincial capital of Al-Raqqa on Friday, ahead of the long anticipated offensive by the Kurdish-backed “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF).

                According to a Syrian government source, the leaflets dropped by the U.S. Air Force advised the civilians of Raqqa City to leave the area before the coming offensive by the Syrian Democratic Forces. On Thursday, a large convoy from the Syrian Democratic Forces made its way to the northern countryside of Al-Raqqa, where they met up with their comrades that are preparing to attack the provincial capital.

                This latest offensive is going to be conducted under the supervision of the U.S. military advisers; it is likely going to be a long campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
