On July 26, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 4th Division and the Tiger Forces captured the strategic towns of Saham al-Jawlan, Tasil and Adwan from the ISIS-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid Army in the framework of their military operation in the western Daraa countryside, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
A source in the 4th Division revealed to SouthFront that the SAA and the Russian Aerospace Forces killed more than 600 fighters of the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army since the beginning of the attack on the group’s pocket. Furthermore, the source confirmed that former fighters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) are leading the ground assault on the terrorist group positions.
An hour earlier, the SAA captured the towns of key towns of Jillen and Hayt and the hill of al-Jumou following heavy clashes with fighters of the ISIS-affiliated group.
The next target of the SAA is the town of al-Shajara, where the remaining fighters of the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army are hiding. The SAA will likely capture and neutralize all these fighters in the upcoming hours, as they appear to be not willing to fight.
