On August 11, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and local fighters captured 15 areas in the northern and northeastern al-Suwyada countryside following heavy clashes with ISIS fighters, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.
The liberated areas are Rasm al-Tamthunah, Khrbat al-Ambashi, Telal al-Haybariah, Rusum Marush, Dahrat Rashied, Zariybah, Khirbat al-Shahriyah, Wadi al-Rumylan, Wadi Shajarah, Ramlat Nassir, al-Nahiyan, Tal al-Dab’a, Tal al-Dabiyiyah and Qabr al-Shikh Hassan.
The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq has not released any report regarding the ongoing battles in northern al-Suwayda so far. Usually this means that the remaining fighters of the terrorist group are retreating.
The SAA will likely secure more areas in northern al-Suwayda over the upcoming hours as the remaining ISIS defenses appear to be collapsing rapidly.
