BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in the Al-Safa region of Al-Sweida, today, after a 24 hour hiatus to fend off an Islamic State (ISIS).

Led by their elite 4th Armored Division and 5th Corps, the Syrian Arab Army began their push up the steep cliffs of the Al-Safa region this morning, striking several sites controlled by the Islamic State terrorists.

Not long after launching their large-scale assault, the Syrian Arab Army found themselves involved in a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorists at one of several rocky cliffs in the Al-Safa region.

According to a military source in the provincial capital of Sweida, the Syrian Arab Army managed to advance up one of the highest peak in the Al-Safa region, leaving them only a short distance from imposing fire control over much of the area.

The military source said that the Syrian Arab Army did suffer over ten casualties trying to make this advance; they would also inflict heavy losses in the Islamic State’s ranks.

The Syrian Arab Army is now working to secure several hilltops in the Al-Safa region, as they look to eliminate the last remnants of the Islamic State in southern Syria.

Pregunto como puede resistir ISIS sin agua y suministros… El ejercito Sirio debe usar otras estrategias como drones y la fuerza aérea para despedazar a los pocos terroristas que quedan.
