On August 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and local fighters reached the area of Suh al-Qasium in the northeastern al-Suwayda countryside and captured the area of al-Suways in the northern countryside of the governorate, according to the al-Suwayda 24 blog.
The Syria-based blog said that warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) supported the SAA attack and carried out airstrikes on several positions and hideouts of the terrorist groups in the northern and northeastern al-Suwayda countryside.
During its advance the SAA seized several light weapons, which were left behind by ISIS fighters. The terrorists even left several shaving machines, which indicates that some of them may be planning to run away to civilian areas.
The SAA launched its military operation against the remaining cells of ISIS in the southeastern governroate of al-Suwayda two days ago. So far, ISIS fighters have showed very little resistance for not so clear reasons.
