Pro-ISIS sources have released new claims on alleged casualties of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies in the ongoing operation against ISIS cells in eastern al-Suwayda.
According to this version, ISIS terrorists have allegedly killed 68 pro-government fighters, including 7 officers, and have destroyed 5 battle tanks, 5 vehicles, 2 armoured vehicles and 3 units of other equipment. ISIS supporters have also claimed that the SAA and its allies were forced to withdraw under the pressure of ISIS members.
However, no photos or videos have been released to confirm these numbers.
The new ISIS claims come amid a successful operation of the SAA against the terrorist group’s cells in the Deir Ezzor desert where over 5,200km2 of the area were secured by government troops.
