BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The so-called Islamic State (ISIS) is facing imminent defeat in east Sweida, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies close-in on the terrorist group’s last positions.

Backed by their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the Syrian Arab Army has liberated site after site in the eastern countryside of Al-Sweida, which has resulted in the exponential reduction of the Islamic State’s Badiya Al-Sham pocket.

The Syrian Arab Army and their allies managed to liberate a dozen towns and hills that were occupied by the Islamic State for nearly four years.

Among the areas liberated by the Syrian Army and their allies over the last week were the following towns and hilltops: Tal Tulaywat, Tal Layla, Tal Ajar, Tal Khunayfas, Tal Aqas, Tal Ali, Tal Al-Khayl, Tal Umm Janbiris, Khirbat Ambashi, Khirbat Habiriyah, Mushayrifah, and Tal Marar.

As a result of this massive advance, the Syrian Army has liberated over 650 square kilometers of territory from the Islamic State terrorists.

Following these string of losses to the Syrian Arab Army and their allies, the Islamic State has been forced to retreat to the large Al-Safa Canyon in eastern Al-Sweida.

It is at the Al-Safa Canyon where the Islamic State is expected to make their last stand against the Syrian Army and their allies.

For the Syrian Army, they still need to liberate over 1,000 square kilometers in order to fully clear the Islamic State’s remaining pocket in the eastern countryside of Al-Sweida.

Once this large Islamic State pocket is cleared, the Syrian Arab Army will have full control of the Al-Sweida Governorate for the first time in years.
