BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their field operations in the Al-Safa volcanic region of Al-Sweida this week after repelling two Islamic State (ISIS) attempts to breakout of the area.

Led by the 3rd Corps and 10th Division, the Syrian Arab Army attempted to advance at the southwestern and northeastern axes of the Al-Safa region, while facing heavy resistance from the Islamic State terrorists.

According to a military source in Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army was able to make some progress near the Qasr Sheikh Hussein area; however, the Islamic State launched a swift counter-assault to reclaim the territories they lost.

The Islamic State is now working to retake the water source they lost to the Syrian Arab Army last week.

This could be the Islamic State’s last major assault, as the absence of a water supply is likely bearing down on their fighters in this vast volcanic region in Syria’s southern countryside.

Drug the water supply so that it puts drinkers of to sleep for a few days then give it back too ISIS. Then give them a day or so while they all go to sleep then go and take them all out.

Boo Hoo, reap what you sow.How many thousands of innocents where deprived of water, food,homes and livelihood due to their immoral and criminal acts. The Kurds, the other terrorist group would poison the water. They profit from selling drugs. They have also sold weapons to ISIS. Like the Mafia, they like drive by shootings too.

Hold the reservoir, it is your greatest weapon. It will force the U.S. to fly in water to their ISIS or write them off.

It was earlier reported that many Daesh fighters were killed and many snipers eliminated and it was just a matter of time before SAA would take back the Volcanic Mountain areas. From the video footage earlier shown it was clear that the landscape was not favorable for BMPs / Tanks. SAF & RuAF were deployed too. Heavy Caliber Mortars were used too for shelling. Yet not so favorable results to eliminate the terrorists. Inspite of such heavy pounding how is it possible that Daesh are managing to hold on for over 3 weeks close to 1 month now?
