"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "
Khalil Gibran (How I Became a Madman)

Battle for Al-Sukhnah proves difficult as ISIL refuses to concede city- Al-Masdar News
BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:15 A.M.) – The battle for Al-Sukhnah has been ongoing for several days now and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is finding the fight far more violent and intense than initially expected.
The primary reason for the fierce battle is the Islamic State’s (ISIL) refusal to give-up the city, despite being outnumbered and surrounded from two different flanks.
While the Syrian Army has entered Al-Sukhnah, they have been unable to advance past the southwestern corridor of the city, as the Islamic State’s front-lines prove difficult to fracture.
