Over the past day, Syrian troops, with the support of the Russian Air Forces, continued the operation against terrorists in the south-west of the province of Daraa and liberated the settlement of Abidin, then moved towards the main IS city in this region – Ash-Shajarah. Now the SAA controls about 99% of the territory of the governorate, while the occupation zone was reduced to about 70 km2.

Also yesterday, government forces conducted a joint operation with the RuAF against the terrorists based in the Safa Canyon area in the north-east of the province of As-Suwayda. As a result, ISIS fighters had to leave several points and retreat.

Closer to the evening, militants in the north-west of the SAR once again tried to attack the Hmeimim airbase (Latakia) with drones. Russian Air Defense systems, however, managed to repulse the attack.
