DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:00 P.M.) – The Syrian forces continue to grab more lands from the Islamic State in east Swaida countryside amid massive jihadi retreat.

Using heavy artillery and missile shelling, the Syrian Army managed to advance into the rocky cliffs surrounding Safa Hilltops; the last ISIS stronghold in the area.

The strikes killed more than 20 ISIS militants, including 3 snipers whose fire curbed the Army’s advance at one point.

The area where the extremist jihadists are holed up is completely surrounded by the government troops, who periodically finish off ISIS militants attempting to flee.

How in the world do you expect to defeat militants in Idlib who are large in number and you can’t even conquer a small pocket of Islamic State Mujahideen lions in Swaida. Truly indeed Allah gives victory to whomever he please. Truly indeed Allah takes martyres from whomever he pleases.
