Yesterday morning, the Syrian army attacked ISIS positions in the Al-Safa volcanic plateau in the north-east of the province of As-Suwayda for the fourth time in a week. The troops managed to repel several positions, but the terrorists continued to exert powerful resistance. Several ideologists of the terrorist group tried to escape from the encirclement, but were discovered and subsequently liquidated.
Meanwhile, the SAA, together with the Palestinian allies from the “Liwaa Al-Quds” group, launched the large-scale operation against the Islamic State in the east of the province of Homs with the aim of complete liberation of the Syrian desert.
The Syrian army, based in the north-west of the SAR, are still waiting for the word of command to storm the militants’ positions.
The militants, in turn, continued to prepare fortifications and dig trenches along the front line. Yesterday, in the north-west of Hama province, “National Liberation Front” fighters blew up two bridges across the ditch to obstruct the path of the SAA in case of attack.
The situation in the besieged region can drastically change in connection with Turkey’s announcement of the recognition of the “Tahrir al-Sham” group as a terrorist organization.
