BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The Syrian government forces resumed their field operations in the Badiya Al-Sham region of Al-Sweida, today, targeting several areas under the control of the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL).

Backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was able to regain control of two areas that were previously captured by the Islamic State during their counter-offensive last week.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army and their allies were able to regain control of the Bir Aura and Tal Arar areas after a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorists on Monday.

The Syrian military’s battle to retake these areas originally began on Sunday, when their forces began to heavily pound the Islamic State’s positions at three different axes in the Badiya Al-Sham region.

Once the Islamic State’s lines were fractured, the Syrian military began their push to retake these areas from the Islamic State forces.

As shown in the photos below, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party forces from Al-Sweida played an imperative role in retaking these areas:
