BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) is under heavy attack in southern Syria as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies continue their large-scale offensive inside the strategic Al-Safa region.

Backed by heavy artillery and airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army swarmed the hills of Al-Safa this afternoon following a successful morning in which their troops managed to liberate more than two kilometers of mountainous terrain from the Daesh terrorists.

According to a military source in nearby Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army is steadily advancing at the northern hills of Al-Safa this afternoon.

The source said that the Syrian Army has been relying on heavy artillery and missile strikes to fracture Daesh’s defenses and pave the way for their troops to advance in this rocky region of Al-Sweida.

The Al-Safa region is located in the northeastern part of the Al-Sweida Governorate; it is the last area under Daesh control in southern Syria.
