Syrian troops have liberated the settlement of Khirbat al-Umbashi from ISIS and eganged have terrorists in the settlement of al-Qara in the eastern part of al-Suwayda province, according to pro-government sources.
Previously, ISIS cells were driven out of the areas of Bi’r Tayyārah, Bi’r Um Salabikh, Kabt Mount, Tell Shadid, Abar Warak and Bir Atshan in eastern al-Suwayda,
In a separate development, the Syrian Arab Army and the National Defense Forces secured the settlements Tayyara, al-Bawdah, Wadi al-Luwayziyah and some other points near the border with Iraq, south of the US-occupied area of At Tanf.
Both these operations against ISIS are ongoing in the Syrian desert area because the terrorist group’s cells still pose a security threat to the country. While ISIS’ self-proclaimed Caliphate is formally defeacted in Syria and Iraq, the both governments clearly understand that they have to contribute significant efforts to establish security in the liberated areas.
