Syrian Army Recaptures From ISIS More Positions In Al-Safa (Photos)

On September 30, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured several lakes, positions and fortifications in the area of al-Safa north of the governorate of al-Suwayda after killing and injuring several ISIS fighters, according to Sham Hamadan, a reporter for the Syrian News TV.

A day earlier, the SAA supported by warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) advanced in Qabr al-Sheikh Hassan in al-Safa and imposed control of a large area after heavy clashes with ISIS members.

Meanwhile, the ISIS linked news agency Amaq claimed that ISIS fighters repelled an attack on their positions in the heart of al-Safa and killed at least ten soldiers of the SAA. Syrian pro-government sources have not commented on the terrorist group’s claims yet.

The SAA launched its military operation in al-Safa in early August in order to free around 30 civilian hostages who were abducted by ISIS fighters from their homes in the eastern al-Suwayda countryside. Some pro-government sources expert that the military pressure may force the terrorist group to release the hostages soon.

Treacherous terrain there.
I did not realize ISIS was so well dug in on the Al-Safa plateau. Caves for supplies,etc.
SAA can not use their mobile firepower there, it’s a tough battle using infantry.

FlorianGeyer

Yes, it is some of the most inhospitable terrain on Earth.

I wonder how the SAA will be able to prevent terror gangs from installing themselves there in the future ?

I would think that has always been an area for fugitives to hide in.

Alejandro Bonifacio

when i watched the photos of that region i realized why the SAA has a slow advance, a little piece of hell on earth

Smaug

And to think all that time it was marked red on the map it must have been coming under ISIS’direct control…

PZIVJ

From what you posted yesterday.
Did not know you could read a map Smaug. :)

Smaug

Goodbye forever.

You can call me Al

argh, I am smiling away here, but that was a wee bit nasty.

Edit – oh sorry, it’s Smaug.

Bob

Actually, suspect most people here would like you to be ‘goodbye forever’ from this forum.

FlorianGeyer

Smaug gets his carer to show him and Smaug then grunts and smears his faeces on it.

Makes one wonder where else they are? Well they revealed theselves when they attacked those civilians…not an opposing military unit.

God damned shitty people fight for isis.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

FlorianGeyer

Happy birthday old chap :)

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

thank you sir! i went to a shooting range with my dad :))

FlorianGeyer

On a CQB range I always found buckshot to the head to be effective and in real life that negates the use of body armor :) Plus, the spread gives a comfortable margin for error .

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

for sure lol

Ronald

Jens Holm

Nice with some progress.

Bobby Twoshoes

You can see why it’s been slow going, that terrain looks like hell, at least the ISIS scum will be acclimatised to their new home when they are finally cleansed.

Rob

SAA could use drones to locate abducted civilians and ISIS.

You can call me Al

Not really as they are in caves.
