DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 P.M.) – On Thursday morning, mechanized units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a vital advance in central Syria after overwhelming beleaguered ISIS insurgents that have begun to run low on ammunition after being fully encircled by the SAA for almost two months.

According to Al-Masdar News field correspondent Ibrahim Joudeh, the SAA wrestled control of Shuwyha village after engaging ISIS militants throughout the night.

This advance notably has the SAA within striking distance of slicing adrift ISIS’ pocket, thereby ending the Islamic State’s reign in central Syria for good.

Although a partial evacuation deal took place last week, ISIS still controls around 20 villages across the provincial border between Hama and Homs as most jihadist fighters refused to leave the region at the time.

Dear SAA, Don’t take any prisoners. Putting them through the courts and trying to prove their crime, rape, brutal killing bringing so much of death & destruction etc is not possible considering that they have all this as part of being Daesh. Any scum who raises a white flag shoot the flag and then the terrorist. Ensure not to take any photos & videos, no body is gonna miss them anyway. Send them to h**l where they belong. Erase them from the earth. This scum cant be allowed to live and breed and further work towards Caliphate – 2. Daesh… Read more »

the SAA “wrestled” control of Shuwyha village.

The word is “wrested” not “wrestled”
