BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized more ground from the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) this afternoon, following another major push eastern Al-Sweida.
Backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) of Al-Sweida, the Syrian Army stormed the Khirbat Al-Ambashi area of the Badiya Al-Sham region this afternoon.
Not long after launching the attack on the Khirbat Al-Ambashi area, the Syrian Army managed to impose full control over this site, forcing the Islamic State to further retreat into the desert.
The Syrian Army and their allies would then full secure Khirbat Al-Ambashi and its surrounding points in order to prepare for a potential counter-assault from the Islamic State.
In addition to liberating Khirbat Al-Ambashi, the Syrian military also took hold of several other areas inside the Badiya Al-Sham region of Al-Sweida.
Among the recent areas captured were Tal Qabr Sayah, Rasm Abu Rour, Tal Al-Dahaya, Rassoum Boulayah, Rasm Al-Samahiyah, Sayr Abu Sarwal, Wadi Shatayeb Suleiman, Tal Thawa, Soum Al-Mujaydi, Aradi Al-Juways, and Wadi Al-Sahel.
These losses will prove devastating for the Islamic State if they do no quickly launch a counter-offensive to retake these territories from the Syrian Army.
