BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a big assault in the eastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate, today, targeting a strategic dam in the northeastern countryside of the Al-Sweida Governorate.

ISIS began the offensive by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Al-Zaaf Dam in a bid to retake the ground they lost late last month.

A fierce battle would ensue between the two parties at the Al-Zaaf Dam, resulting in heavy casualties for all parties involved.

However, despite the intensity of the Islamic State attack on the Al-Zaaf Dam, the terrorist group was unable to breakthrough the Syrian Arab Army’s lines after several hours of fighting.

According to a military source in the provincial capital of Al-Sweida, the Syrian Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) managed to kill scores of ISIS terrorists before restoring security around the Al-Zaaf Dam.

This latest attack by ISIS marks the second time in the last ten days that they have attempted to advance in the northeastern countryside of the Al-Sweida Governorate.
