The Syrian Army has repelled an ISIS attack in the area of Tal Barakat in eastern al-Suwayda and has advanced on ISIS positions in the areas of al-Qara and al-Wakka, according to pro-government sources. At the same time, the areas of Aura, Khirbat Jarbu and Hibbariyah have remained in the hands of ISIS terrorists.
Government troops launched an operation against ISIS cells in eastern al-Suwayda on June 2. Since then, intense clashes are ongoing in the area. Initially, it was expected that the Syrian Army will easily re-establish the law and order in this part of the province. However, the situation appeared to be much more complicated.
