BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – A large number of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reinforcements poured into the Badiya Al-Sham region of Al-Sweida to help their comrades beat back another Islamic State (ISIS) attack.
ISIS launched another attack tonight after failing to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses near the strategic hilltop of Tal Barakat in the Badiya Al-Sham region.
While no advances have been made, the Islamic State has intensified their assault this time around in order to fracture the Syrian Army’s lines and retake the Tal Barakat area.
The Islamic State is trying to retake this area from the Syrian Arab Army after losing Tal Barakat this past weekend.
The Syrian Army is defending this area alongside their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Al-Fatemiyoun, and Hezbollah.
