BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in the Al-Safa region of southern Syria, today, after taking a brief hiatus this week due to the weather.

Led by their 3rd Corps and 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army kicked off their attack on Friday by storming the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) defenses at the northern and northwestern axes of Al-Safa.

Following an intense battle with the Daesh militants, the Syrian Arab Army managed to advance more than 1.5 kilometers through the terrorist group’s defenses.

According to a military source in nearby Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army was able to score more gains this evening after they cracked Daesh’s defenses in the Qasr Sheikh Hussein area.

The source added that the Syrian Arab Army killed over 20 Daesh militants and destroyed a number of technical vehicles that were used by the terrorist group in the Al-Safa region.

These volcanic mountains must be a very difficult terrain where heavy artillery & tanks cannot move in and SAA have been seriously trying to get rid of the daesh & take this areas for over a month now. Daesh still seem to be in a strong position and are not giving up in-spite of earlier news which claimed that they had no access to any water. All the best SAA.

The foreign backed jihadis have lost their source of water (although they may have stored supplies) then it becomes a matter of time. If I were the SAA, I would just make sure they don’t receive re-enforcements and supplies (especially of water). Either the jihadis will attempt a breakout in which case they SAA can practice a duck shoot or, in a few weeks time, they can go in and burn the bodies of jihadi parasites that vultures will be feasting on.
