BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their field operations in the Al-Safa region of Al-Sweida, today, after repelling a big Islamic State (ISIS) counter-offensive.

Led by their 3rd Corps and 10th Division, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Islamic State’s positions in the Al-Safa region from two different axes in a bid to overwhelm the terrorist forces.

According to a military source in Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) managed to liberate new points in the Al-Safa region on Friday, forcing the Islamic State terrorists to fall further back.

The source said that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies also killed at least ten Islamic State militants and destroyed a field artillery gun and two technical vehicles.

Despite this advance by the Syrian Arab Army, the Islamic State maintains control over several parts of the Al-Safa region, including the highest point that overlooks the government’s positions.

As the kidnapped Druze are not here then they need to drop as many bombs as possible. These creeps are not worth SAA lives.
