BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) carried out a number of airstrikes in the southwestern corner of Syria this morning, hitting several Islamic State (ISIS) targets in the process.

According to a military report from Daraa, the Syrian Air Force repeatedly bombed the Islamic State affiliate “Jaysh Khaled bin Walid” in the Yarmouk Basin region, which is located near the border of the Israeli occupied Golan Heights.

The Syrian airstrikes specifically targeted the terrorist group’s positions near the towns of Tafas and Nawa in western Daraa.

Today’s airstrikes over the Yarmouk Basin region mark the second this month that the Syrian Air Force has targeted this area.

Previously, the Syrian Air Force had not targeted the Yarmouk Basin region since it was controlled by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in 2014.

With the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies closing in on Daraa city, the SyAAF has begun shifting their attention to the large Islamic State pocket near the border of the occupied Golan Heights.
