BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in southwest Daraa this morning, targeting the last areas under the control of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/Daesh) affiliated Jaysh Khaled bin Walid forces.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from their Russian allies, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces steamrolled the remaining Jaysh Khaled bin Walid militants in the Yarmouk Basin region of southwest Daraa after pushing south from the recently liberated towns of Tal Jamou and Jaleen.

According to a military source in Daraa, the Syrian Arab Army liberated several areas from the Jaysh Khaled bin Walid terrorists, including the towns of Jamleh, Awad, and Abu Kharj.

The aforementioned towns are located at the western axis of the Islamic State-held Yarmouk Basin region pocket in southwest Daraa.

As a result of this advance by the Syrian Arab Army on Saturday, the Islamic State is now in control of only 100 square kilometers of territory in the Yarmouk Basin region.

Furthermore, more than 200 Islamic State terrorists have been reportedly killed over the course of nine days, the Syrian Observatory for the Human Rights stated this morning.

With closed off borders behind them, the Islamic State is preparing to make their last stand at the mountains of southwest Daraa.

SOHR is biased so Im waiting for SAA report. Bad news is that their partners crime left behind weapons for shooting down aircraft so its best if they kill as many as possible before they retreat to the mountains. Reprobates will soon be going to their paradise called h**l. This isn’t related to the article but when this is all over, Syrian government should set up some type of citizens bounty hunters program for the remnant that slipped through the cracks.
