BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their field operations inside the Al-Safa region of southern Syria this morning, a military source in Sweida told Al-Masdar News.

Led by their 3rd Corps and 10th Division, the Syrian Arab Army began their assault by storming the Al-Safa region from three different axes.

According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s first major advance took place at the Qabr Sheikh Hussein area, where the latter managed to liberate a number of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) trenches.

The Syrian Arab Army would then advance at the southwestern axis of the Al-Safa region after cracking the Islamic State’s lines and liberating a number of water swamps and caves.

The military source added that during today’s attack, the Syrian Arab Army killed more than ten Islamic State terrorists, including three snipers that previously wrecked havoc on the government forces.

The Syrian Arab Army was able to make this big advance without any air support from the Russian Aerospace Forces.

Much of the missiles strikes that were carried out against the Islamic State came from the Syrian Arab Army’s special forces in rural Sweida.

The Syrian Army is now working to seize all of the Qabr Sheikh Hussein and Al-Habariyah areas, which are believed to be the Islamic State’s last strongholds in Sweida.

This has been a long and costly battle for Syria. Good news is that these creeps can’t hide amongst the civilians.

Go for it!
Finish this operation and then concentrate on Idlib to secure the Syrian state.
