BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) suffered a major setback on Monday following a big advance by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in southern Syria.

Led by their elite 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army began their assault on Monday by storming the Al-Safa region from two axes.

The Syrian Arab Army was then able to fracture Daesh’s lines at the northern and northwestern axes of the Al-Safa region, paving the way for their troops liberate more than two kilometers of territory.

During the large-scale advance, the Syrian Arab Army managed to destroy several trenches and hideouts that were used by Daesh to defend the Al-Safa hills.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army killed over 25 Daesh terrorists during the assault, while also seizing a large quantity of their weapons and explosives.

The Syrian Army is now pushing deeper into the Al-Safa hills as they look to split this region in half.

This is a common military tactic the Syrian Army has used in several past battles; it ultimately isolates the terrorists in two pockets and forces them to either surrender or fight till the last man, as they will not have any supply lines open.
