BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated the entire southern pocket of Hajar Al-Aswad that was controlled by the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group.

Following the liberation of this large pocket, the Syrian military spent several hours combing through the previously ISIS-occupied area in order to clear all the remnants of this terrorist group.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian military now finds themselves in control of over 90 percent of Hajar Al-Aswad, leaving only a small portion of the town still under ISIS control.

A Syrian government drone captured footage of the recently liberated areas after today’s battle – video below:
