BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Army with support from the local National Defense Forces and air force intelligence, launched a massive offensive yesterday against ISIS in north-east Suweida countryside.

The purpose with the timing of this operation was to take advantage of ISIS’ lack of manpower and their withdrawal of the majority of their fighters so they can defend Raqqa province against Kurdish-led forces.

The operation lasted two days and paved the way for the Syrian government forces to recapture huge chunk of areas including Sa`dah, Al-Masiydah, Al-Asfar, Shuhaib, Al-Saqiyah, Shinwan, east of Barik and Al-Janinah.

The areas captured according to military sources, equate to around 300km square.
