BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a large-scale offensive in southern Syria two months ago that targeted the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last major pocket in the Al-Safa region of Al-Sweida.

During this time frame, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to liberate a large chunk of the ISIS-held pocket, including several hilltops and mountaintops that were used by the terrorist group to harass their forces in southern Syria.

In a new report, pro-government activists stated the Syrian Arab Army has killed at least 288 Islamic State terrorists during the past 62 days in the Al-Safa region.

While the estimations continue to fluctuate, it does appear that the Syrian Arab Army has eliminated a great deal of Islamic State terrorists in the Al-Safa region of Al-Sweida.

A military source in Sweida city told Al-Masdar last month that an estimated 1,000-1,200 Islamic State terrorists remain in this vast volcanic region; however, this number may be exponentially lower, given that many militants managed to escape the area.

Nope. They didn’t publish stats usually…
And the cockroach infestation never reached the million bar…
Actually, SAA mostly took care about Nusra/Muslim-Brotherhood AKA al-Qaeda, the big ISIS meatgrinder being the Kurds : YPJ girls are enough to exterminate ISIS…
