BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army began their final attack in southern Syria last night, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last positions on the Al-Safa Mountain.
Led by their 1st, 3rd, and 10th divisions, the Syrian Arab Army began the attack at dusk, yesterday, scoring a big advance from Tal Alam to the Qabr Sheikh Hussein area.
The Syrian Arab Army’s advance was captured by Hezbollah’s official media wing on Thursday – please see below:
The Islamic State is now hoping to hold onto their last positions on the Al-Safa Mountain; however, the likelihood of them holding this area is very slim.
Once the Al-Safa Mountain is liberated, the Syrian Arab Army will be in full control of the Al-Sweida Governorate for the first time in several years.
