DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State is steadily losing ground in a small swath of land they control in central Syria amid massive Army advance.
today, the Syrian Army managed to impose full control over al-Moadamiyah town, located to the south-east of Aqirbat; the former ISIS heartland.
According to a military source, the battle for al-Moadamiyah lasted 2 days before the elite troops of the 4th Armored Division – which spearheaded the offensive – completely seize the town.
The source noted that Army troops entered the town last night but couldn’t fortify its positions due to ISIS counteroffensive.
The fall of al-Moadamiyah will further impel the government forces’ push to liberate Soha; a key bastion for the terror group in the pocket. To do so, the Syrian Army attempt to cut off all supply routes to Soha and hunt down as many militants as possible.
