BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – At approximately 6:30 A.M. (local time), the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists attempted to breakout of the Al-Safa Mountain, which is completely surrounded by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in east Sweida.
According to a military source in Sweida city, the Islamic State attempted to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the northern slope of the Al-Safa Mountain; however, they were ultimately caught dead in their tracks by local scouts from the National Defense Forces.
The source added that once the Islamic State terrorists were spotted, a fierce battle would breakout and last for over three hours on Saturday morning.
The Islamic State terrorists have become desperate on the Al-Safa Mountain, as they are likely running out of provisions to survive on this large site in east Sweida.
ISIS previously controlled most of east Sweida, but this would drastically change once the Syrian Arab Army shifted their attention to this region of the province.
