BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack on the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last bastion in southern Syria on Monday.

Led by their 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army began their attack on Monday by storming the Islamic State’s positions in the Qasr Sheikh Hussein area of the Al-Safa region.

Initially, the Syrian Arab Army was able to liberate several points from the Islamic State after a fierce battle in the Qasr Sheikh Hussein area.

However, this Syrian Arab Army advance would be short-lived, as the Islamic State managed to reclaim all of the territory they lost after launching a swift counter-assault on Monday afternoon.

Following the Islamic State’s counter-assault, the Syrian Arab Army unleashed a flurry of artillery shells and missiles towards the terrorist group’s last positions in the Al-Safa region.

Since launching this artillery assault, the Syrian Arab Army has begun another ground attack in a bid to liberate the last areas under the Islamic State’s occupation.

Only a matter of time before ISIS is cleared from al-Safa…..
On termination, they are going to be so disappointed that the vestal virgins are going to give these uncouth losers a wide berth. More likely they’ll be given the task of cleaning out an Augean stables that never empties (apologies for the mixed myths)

Yes, it is only a matter of time, but it looks like SAA is not good at all making military tactics.

AllahuAkbar!!! Allah is the Greatest. Yes there many pictures online of Islamic State Mujahideen terminating Saa rats with there dead,rotten, filthy bodies littered on the grounds in Al-Safa. Saa are dying in there rage trying to take this area from the mujahideen at the same time trying to bust up the moral of there soldiers and supporters that they are winning. Truly indeed Allah gives victory to whomever he pleases despite the enemies advance warfare technology that they use against the mujahideen. All praise be to Allah Lord of all that exist.
