Syrian Army Destroys ISIS Fortifications, Makes Gains In Al-Safa

Donate

On November 8, a source in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told SouthFront that the army and its allies advanced more than 500 meters deep inside the heavily fortified area of al-Safa after heavy clashes with ISIS fighters.

Syrian pro-government sources said that heavy rocket launchers of the SAA’s 4th Division had played a key role in the attack by shelling the terrorist group fortifications in al-Safa. The 4th Division was deployed around the ISIS-held area a day earlier.


From its side, the ISIS-lined news agency, Amaq, claimed that the terrorists killed five Syrian soldiers during the clashes in al-Safa. However, pro-government activists said that only two officers of the SAA were killed.

Earlier, the SAA managed to free all the remaining al-Suwayda hostages from the hands of ISIS during a successful special operation in the eastern Homs countryside. This allowed the army and its allies to step up their military operation in al-Safa, as the area has become free of civilians.

    Reports from Syria indicate that Russia is gearing up for a massive bombing campaign again. The headchoppers and their US masters are getting squeezed daily. Meanwhile in Yemen the Ansarollah have just routed a Saudi column on the outskirts of Hodeidah. The Zaidi Shia Ansarollah group’s flag reads as following: “God Is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam”

        Daesh rats at Al Safa will no be exterminated because the hostages are free.

      About time that small spec of Syrian land was free of ISIS. Why is it not bombed 24/7? Have Putin call Trump for a MOAB or two. Would be good for them to work together on this one.

        But every time SDF and US coalition attacks the ISIS E river pocket, Daesh increases in strength? LOL
