BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The National Defense Forces (NDF) released a new video this week of their Mhardeh division taking part in the defense of Kafr Naboudeh in the northwestern countryside of Hama.

Mhardeh, one of the largest Christian towns in Syria, has long been targeted by the jihadist and Turkish-backed rebel groups (even former US-backed groups) in northern Hama; this prompted them to establish one of the most powerful NDF units in the country.

Along with nearby Sqaylabiyeh, Mhardeh is known for its reliance on their local population to defend their town. For this reason, the jihadist and Turkish-backed rebels have often targeted the civil infrastructure of Mhardeh in order to punish the civilians there.

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.
