Following previous advances against ISIS in the Yarmouk Valley, the Syrian Army developed their operation breaking the terrorist group’s defense and established full control of the entire area of southwestern Syria.
According to pro-government sources, about 100 ISIS members surrendered to government troops. This allowed to gain control of the villages of Beit Irah, Qusayr and Kowaya, which had been in the hands of ISIS.
Some sources say that about 25 of the 100 surrendered ISIS members were executed by locals and ex-members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) that were particiapting in the Syrian Army operation.
The total death toll of ISIS during the battle for the Yarmouk Valley remains unclear, but according to some local sources, over 1,000 terrorists were killed.
