The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that SAA artillery guns and rocket launchers shelled the remaining positions of ISIS in the in the eastern al-Suwayda countryside.
From its side, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq has not released any report regarding the situation in the eastern al-Suwayda countryside yet. This indicates that the terrorist group defenses there are collapsing. Local sources confirmed this and revealed that the remaining fighters of ISIS had withdrawn towards the mountainous areas in a last attempt to survive the SAA attack.
According to Syrian pro-government activists, hundreds of ISIS fighters are still hiding in eastern al-Suwayda. The SAA operation is aimed at capturing or killing these fighters before they manage to reorganize their units and to start launching new attacks.
