BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful attack tonight, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) large bastion in southwest Syria.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces and Republican Guard, the Syrian military stormed the Islamic State’s defenses at the large hilltop of Tal Jamou near the Daraa Governorate city of Nawa.

According to a military source in Daraa, the Syrian Army is attempting to break into the Islamic State’s large bastion in the Yarmouk Basin region; however, thus far, they have been unable to penetrate the terrorist group’s defenses.

The Yarmouk Basin region has long been under the control of the Islamic State affiliate “Jaysh Khaled bin Walid”, making this region of Daraa a high priority for the Syrian Army’s High Command.

However, unlike the other formerly rebel-held areas in Daraa, the Islamic State will not be offered any reconciliation agreement from the Syrian government.

Jaysh Khaled bin Walid’s best bet is to be transported to an area in the Badiya Al-Sham region of eastern Syria, but even that is not guaranteed, as the Syrian Army is nearly finished clearing the terrorist group’s large pocket.

Making matters more complicated, there is a large number of displaced civilians living in the Yarmouk Basin region that do not want to reconcile with the government.

The Syrian Army may attempt to negotiate with the rebels in northern Syria to transport anybody unwilling to reconcile with the government.
