DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:25 P.M.) – The Syrian forces have successfully regained control over the entire Quneitra province after most rebel-held towns surrendered and following fierce battles against the jihadi militants.
The Islamic State controls swathes of lands in the far western countryside of Daraa and Quneitra provinces.
Yesterday, the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces managed to recapture Ayn Zakar and Sheikh Hussein towns located in the Yarmouk Basin region.
The ground advance was heavily propelled by effective Russian and Syrian airstrikes, which had targeted positions, supply routes and gatherings for ISIS militants.
Meanwhile, other Army units were capable of taking over the strategic Tall Jomou’ hilltop and the ISIS bastion of Jalin, located in the eastern sector of ISIS enclave.
