The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies launched a new attack on the remaining ISIS positions in the area of al-Safa north of the governorate of al-Suwayda and advanced 2km deep into the heavily fortified area, a source in the army told SouthFront on November 11.
According to the source, the SAA killed several terrorists during its advance in al-Safa. A pickup truck and many motorcycles of ISIS were also destroyed by the army.
Meanwhile, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed that the terrorist group’s fighters killed and injured 25 Syrian soldiers during clashes with the SAA on November 10. However, SouthFront’s source denied Amaq’s claims and said that he is not aware of any loses in the last 48 hours.
The new attack, which is led by the SAA’s 4th Division and backed by Russia, will likely mark the end of ISIS in al-Safa and the entire Damascus desert as the besieged terrorist group’s capabilities were drained by weeks of clashes.
