Furthermore, the terrorist group claimed in the infographic that its fighters repelled “dozens” of SAA attacks on their positions in the desert and destroyed 6 battle tanks and 13 vehicles while doing so.

The SAA launched a military operation against the remaining ISIS cells in the Damascus desert and the northern al-Suwayda countryside in early August, after a brutal attack by the terrorist group on several villages in the eastern al-Suwayda countryside. During the attack, ISIS fighters killed 250 people and abducted around 30 others.

While the SAA managed to clear the northern al-Suwayda countryside, it is still struggling in the area of al-Safa and the hostages are yet to be freed. According to local observers, the rough terrain in the Damascus desert and the safety of the hostages are the biggest challenges faced by the SAA in this operation.

      The numbers are high, even tracked vehicles would have trouble in this terrain. Seems there are thousands of ISIS around and they have no way to escape since their route to the US bases are cut off.

    These Western-backed terrorist groups have always put out vastly exaggerated figures like this for propaganda purposes.
