On September 5, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured several positions in the outskirt of the area of al-Safa, north of the governorate of al-Suwayda, following heavy clashes with ISIS fighters, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
Furthermore, warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the SAA artillery stuck several positions of the terrorist group in the depth of al-Safa.
The SANA’s reporter in al-Suwayda said that ISIS members in al-Safa are now exhausted as a result of the strict siege imposed by the SAA, which continues to prevent any terrorist from leaving the area.
The SAA launched its military operation against ISIS cells in northern al-Suwayda a month ago following a brutal attack by the terrorist group on several villages in the eastern al-Suwayda countryside. Back then, more than 250 people were killed and 30 others were abducted by ISIS fighters.
