BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – On Thursday morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside their allies from Hezbollah, kicked off an important offensive in the vast Badiya Al-Sham region of southeast Syria.

Led by a plethora of divisions, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions at the eastern countryside of Al-Sweida from their positions in southeast Homs.

According to local military journalists, the Syrian Army and their allies scored a major advance against the terrorist forces, liberating the Al-Ashrafiyah, Al-Mushayrifah, Rahbat Mushayrifah, and Awra areas of Badiya Al-Sham.

The Syrian Army and their allies are attempting to advance from two different axes, with the primary assault coming from the Tal Al-Asfar area.
