BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their field operations against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) inside the Al-Safa region of southern Syria on Wednesday.
Backed by heavy airstrikes from the Russian Air Force, the Syrian Arab Army began their operations this morning by storming the Al-Safa hills from several axes.
Following a series of intense clashes, the Syrian Arab Army managed to score a new advance at the northwestern and southwestern axes of the Al-Safa region.
According to a military source in Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army has reached the largest hilltop in the Al-Safa region after this morning’s clashes with the Islamic State terrorists.
The Syrian Arab Army is now moving many of their soldiers to this front in preparation to storm this imperative hilltop that overlooks the entire Al-Safa region.
If the Syrian Arab Army is successful in capturing this hilltop, they will effectively have fire control over the entire Al-Safa region of northeast Sweida.
