BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had another productive day in the southern region of Syria this week, as their troops liberated a great deal of territory from the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).
Led by their 1st, 3rd, and 10th divisions, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by storming the northeastern and western axes of the strategic Al-Safa region in the eastern countryside of the Sweida Governorate.
According to a military source in Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army liberated several points between the western and northeastern axes of Al-Safa region, resulting in the government troops meeting up with one another in this mountainous area.
The source added that the Syrian Arab Army advanced a little over 1.5 kilometers through the Al-Safa region, leaving less than 20 percent of the mountain still under the Islamic State’s control.
ISIS reportedly suffered more casualties during this assault, including heavy losses to their military equipment.
The Syrian Arab Army is now attempting to persuade the remaining Islamic State terrorists to surrender their positions before they launch another big assault to capture the Al-Safa region.
