BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive in east Sweida, today, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions around the Al-Safa Canyon.

Led by their 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army managed to score a major advance across the Badiya Al-Sham region of east Sweida after a fierce battle with the Islamic State.

According to a field report from Sweida, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), liberated the Ard Al-Kara’ area and several other points.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army is now on the verge of reaching the Islamic State’s strongholds of Al-Kara’ and Al-Safa.

Furthermore, in the last five days, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to advance more than 50km deep into the Islamic State’s large desert pocket.

Below is recent video footage of the Syrian Arab Army advancing inside the Badiya Al-Sham region of east Sweida:
