BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive in the Al-Safa region of southern Syria, today, after taking a brief hiatus due to weather conditions.
Led by their 3rd Corps and 4th Armored Division, the Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful attack on the defenses of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in a bid to retake some areas they lost to the terrorist forces this week.
According to a military report from this front, the Syrian Arab Army struck Daesh’s positions from the northern and northwestern axes; this would result in a fierce exchange that is still ongoing at this time.
The report did not specify if the Syrian Arab Army managed to regain ground in Al-Safa; however, most advances are announced during the evening hours, when the military is able to fully secure the liberated ground.
Earlier this week, the Syrian Arab Army found themselves on the defensive due to poor visibility from the rough weather in southern Syria.
