DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:30 P.M.) – Having secured almost the entire province of Daraa, the Syrian forces have shifted focus to the far western flank where the Islamic State controls a swath of land all the way to the Occupied Golan Heights.

The battle against the terror group was launched from two axes and by two elite units.

The Tiger Forces succeeded in recapturing the strategic Tall al-Jomou hilltop located to the southwest of Nawa, after fierce clashes with ISIS militants.

The highly-significant hilltop overlooks the ISIS-held towns of Tasil and Adwan to the south.

Meanwhile, the heavily-equipped 4th Armored Division engaged in heavy clashes against the extremist fighters of Islamic State outside Jaleen town; taking over Tall Ashtara and the nearby areas.

This advance puts the government troops in direct contact with ISIS jihadists holed up in the western part of the town.

The ground advance against the Islamic State was heavily propelled by intense aeria bombardment carried by Russian fighter jets.

How? Contact line is about 20 km long. The armored (4.br) or mechanized (Tiger) brigade is operatively developing on the front of a width of at least 10 km. So, two fronts.

I see you need an immediate help. So, find yourselves a normal rag, put it in a bucket of really cold water and put it back on your head. It’s better now?
