BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – Minutes ago, a military source told Al-Masdar News that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had broken into the Islamic State’s (ISIS) bastion in southwest Syria after heavy airstrikes from their Russian counterparts.
According to the military source, the Syrian Army entered the ISIS-held town of Jaleen, tonight, liberating several sites inside and outside of it.
The source added that the Syrian Army is now working to secure the entire town, as the ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khaled bin Walid terrorists continue to retreat south.
In addition to their advance at Jaleen, the Syrian Army also scored an advance near the key town of Tafas, which is located at the northeastern corridor of the Islamic State pocket.
These advances took place tonight after the Russian Aerospace Forces launched a massive attack against the Islamic State terrorists inside the Yarmouk Basin region.
The Russian Aerospace Forces reportedly launched more than 30 airstrikes over this region in southwest Daraa, paving the way for the Syrian Army to advance through the terrorist group’s fractured defenses.
