Following the capture of Tal Asfar, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies launched a massive attack across the Al-Sweida Governorate, targeting the eastern countryside of the province.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have already captured Deir Nasrani, Rajm Bakr, Tall Salman, Al-Maftara, Tal Al-Maftara, Shinwan, Al-Sakiyah, Al-Qasr, Tal Banat, Al-Bajir, and Khirbat Saada.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army is sweeping through several other villages in the area, as they look to completely expel the US-backed rebels from the region.
