BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their field operations against the Islamic State (ISIS) terror organization in the Al-Safa region of Al-Sweida on Thursday.
Backed by heavy airstrikes from the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began their operation on Thursday morning by storming the Al-Safa region from three different axes.
According to a military source in Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army managed to score a new advance in the Qasr Sheikh Hussein area after a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorists in the Al-Safa volcanic region.
