BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new combing operation in the southeastern region of the country on Thursday, targeting several areas controlled by the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).

Led by their 3rd Division, the Syrian Arab Army stormed several Islamic State hideouts in the Badiya Al-Sham region, as their artillery units provided cover from afar.

According to a military source in the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army mostly concentrated their operation along the Homs-Sweida provincial axis, which has been a hot zone for Islamic State activity these last few weeks.

The Syrian Arab Army is still combing through much of this area; however, it may take a while for them to fully clear the Badiya Al-Sham region due to its vast number of caves and hills.

Cómo sobreviven?, se entiende que no ingresan suministros… Sin comida tendrían necesidad de salir de sus cuevas y para ese momento el ejercito debe estar preparado.

They had enough time to seriously stockpile supplies in caves and even in most arid deserts, you can find some caves with water allowing small scale agriculture just outside. Then they do raids on small communities when they have needs, just like Bedouins used to do for centuries…

SAA should apply the French Foreign Legion method : 1st, have regular troops surrounding the area, then drawing squares on the map, the Legion enters the 1st square, killing anything in, then go to the next square after regular troops secure the cleansed one, etc etc… Tier-Force or ISIS-Hunters could perfectly act as the Legion in this case, they’re known at being pretty bada$$.

Daesh in the Badiya are probably being regularly supplied from al-Tanf and al-Zuqf.

This would mean that SAA is seriously corrupted because you can’t go from al-Tanf to Badiya without passing through SAA lines…
