BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – For the first time this month, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) launched a series of airstrikes across a region of Syria.
According to a military source in Sweida, the Syrian Air Force heavily bombarded the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) positions inside the Badiya Al-Sham region.
The source said that the Syrian Air Force specifically targeted the Khirbat Hosn area at the provincial border of Sweida and Homs; this attack hit an Islamic State sleeper cell that was active in this part of the Badiya Al-Sham region.
He would add that many of the Islamic State terrorists that were holed up in the Al-Safa region in Al-Sweida had managed to escape to this area of the Badiya Al-Sham.
Another source in Damascus told Al-Masdar that the Syrian Army is having a difficult time patrolling this desert region because of the large number of caves in the region.
