On September 1, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) repelled an attack of ISIS fighters on its positions around the Hatil Dam north of the governorate of al-Suwayda, according to the al-Suwayda 24 blog.

“Three personnel of the army were martyred and 13 others were wounded, they were transported to al-Suwayda’s hospitals, on the other side at least seven terrorists were killed,” a source in the SAA told the Syria-based blog.

The SAA captured the Hatil Dam earlier this week after heavy clashes with ISIS fighters. According to al-Suwayda 24, the dam is one of the very few water resources in the area of al-Safa, which explains the terrorist group attempt to recapture it.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the SAA artillery struck several positions and fortifications of ISIS in al-Safa. As a result, several members of the terrorist group were killed and injured.

Despite having a superior fire power, the SAA is still advancing slowly inside and around al-Safa in order to ensure the safety of around 30 civilian hostages, who were abducted by the terrorist group earlier this month.

    The Americans will never give up, to them not winning is worse than death, their culture abhors the weak. If they can’t win, they rewrite history, like they did in Korea and Vietnam.

      unfortunately they are on the wrong side of history and are controlled by the zionists

    Southfront, any chance of a report on the condition of the Syrian Air Force? Have the Allies retrained the men and refurbished the equipment? Sent modern aircraft? etc….

    The SAA advance is too slow. May SAA needs to put special forces behind the enemy lines.
