BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:50 P.M.) – The end is near for the Islamic State (ISIS) group in east Sweida as they find themselves completely overwhelmed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies in this region of the country.

Led by the 3rd, 10th, and 15th divisions, the Syrian Arab Army has been rolling through east Sweida this afternoon, liberating several areas that were occupied by the Islamic State terrorists.

According to a military communique from the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have liberated Rasoum Al-Tathmouni, Khirbat Al-Ambashi, Taloul Al-Haybriyah, Rasoum Maroush, Souh Al-Na’amah, Dhahrah Rashid, Zaribiyah, Khirbat Al-Shahriyah, Wadi Al-Ramliyat,Wadi Shajrah, Zamlah Nasser, Al-Nahiyan, Tal Al-Dhaba’, Tal Dhabi’iyah, and Qabr Al-Sheikh Hussein.

The communique added that the terrorist group’s main supply route to their forces on the Al-Safa Canyon has been cutoff by the Syrian Arab Army and their allies.

The Islamic State is now on their last legs and will likely be unable to hold these remaining points on the Al-Safa Canyon.

For the Syrian Arab Army, this major advance comes as they attempt to negotiate the release of the 30+ civilians kidnapped by the Islamic State in the Al-Sweida Governorate.

ISIS has so far rejected the terms; however, they are fully surrounded and have little options to survive the onslaught should the Syrian Army push any further.
