Deir-ez Zor Sharia Court[edit]

Rebels are alredy wipeout from Deir-ez Zor so why that group is still on the list? It´s not exist anymore. It´s fighters are ded or prisons of Islamic State. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.113.250.26 (talkcontribs) 17:01, 24 August 2014

"Slavonic Forces"[edit]

Regardless of what your position is in the war, these "duped" mercenaries (who happened to be fighting in accord to their "Christian values"), who supposedly were working for "FSB" officers in the service of Assad, were not ultimately proven to be in the service of the FSB. They claim they were lied to and they risked the lives for some local Arab kingpin. This makes one suppose they were working for Assad, as being a mercenary under the current laws of Russia is outlawed and they were arrested on their arrival to Russia by the real FSB after their "failed attempt". If you find sources that prove it otherwise, please provide them below. (For more information, read the whole article in the source provided, please). --92slim (talk) 15:47, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Questions about Palmyra[edit]

Which Arab tribe inhabits Palmyra/Tadmur? I have trouble believing that the Loyalists are able to control that city (which is also almost entirely Sunni) without local allies. Would whatever local allies they have their be listed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.10.117.203 (talk) 03:30, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Non-free image use[edit]

I have removed some non-free images from this article per WP:NFCCE because they do not have the separate, specific rationale required for use in the article per WP:NFCC#10c. These images should not be re-added until a non-free use rationale which satisfies all 10 of the criteria listed at WP:NFCCP has been added. The images I removed are listed below:

These are the ones that I found in my first pass through the article. There are probably other images still in the article which should be removed for the same reason. - Marchjuly (talk) 01:31, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Non-free images are also not allowed to be used in "tables" (i.e., infoboxes) and "galleries" for purely decorative purposes per WP:NFLISTS and WP:NFTABLES. These non-free images are immediately followed by a wikilink to the respective organization's article, which almost always uses the image in its infobox, so no addtional information is provided by using the image in this article. For this reason, using such images would not satisfy WP:NFCC#8 meaning that the acceptable non-free use rationale required by WP:NFCCP cannot be provided for this article. - Marchjuly (talk) 22:15, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
